My Candle and I

Candles shine at my window,

beckoning to you,

Telling you that you are welcome at my door.

I want you to call,

I urge you to call,

Come share my evening, I wait for your call.

The night is lonely,

and I am old,

I promise, if you call

I will not consider you bold.

Please come and share a yarn,

I'll sit,

I'll listen

while I darn.
