"A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle."
This is part of a community blogging activity called the Tarot Blog Hop!

HOW CAN I BE A BETTER CANDLE?
I am the candle, I hold the flame
Thine heart feels dark, you say you hold shame
I'll light the wick through soft, gentle smiles
And waxy drop tears will echo our trials
When you are in dark, I'll shine the way
When you're overworked, I'll bring you play
The light that it gives, it shines heart to heart
When passed onto you, it's just a mere start
The glow it shall then reside brightly in you
Until you search the world, find a heart that's dark, too
To be the best candle, the light has to see
That it cannot stop here, it goes further than me
The light it must move, and its warmth it must share
And find its own way through the travel of prayer
For when the light moves, it can then become two
I've now made it grow, passed the torch here to you
Then you will find shadows, bright ways for your friend
The wick that lives on never fades nor will end
For released from the neck of a single wick donned
You'll find that it spreads, lights a thousand such wands
From my wick to yours and then from your wick to theirs
We all become part of the world's candle heirs.
