A Candle Burns

A candle is burning yellow near the rail of an altar

In the church setting its flame will likely not falter

 

The Sun is blazing outdoors, a yellowish orb up in the sky

Is it solar fusion that’s the answer to the question “Why?”

 

The Earthly candle exhausting its fuel in just a matter of days

The Sun continuing its cauldron fire — billions of years does amaze!

 

Am I like the candle, a life lived quickly, for only decades as a mortal?

Living life on Earth but experiencing God through my own spirit-portal

 

When my life on Earth has come to a time of having been well-spent

May I realize a fuller Creator Consciousness as “life everlasting” sent

 

And when the Sun comes to a grand and long-radiant demise

Our Creator provides other stars glowing to answer all the “Whys”

 

For God’s ever-loving presence is so infinitely displayed

There’s no reason for humanity to get woefully dismayed

 

The candle that was the life of Jesus was burned to show us love

A doorway to God , whether within us or from somewhere “up above”
