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”
