While the flame lasts

We glow for all too brief a time,
then fade again to dark;
a daily reminder
that what light we have
to bring into the world
is merely a reflection
of your fire.
And yet, while the flame lasts
it burns so deep and true;
far larger and more powerful
than one might guess,
just looking
at this modest exterior...
