Our Love Like a Candle

Wintertime 111

Our love like a candle flame

burns strong and bright

at the best of times

the flame of our love so strong

makes our passion flare again and again

but like a candle flame

I’ve seen changes in your face

and then the flame flickers and wavers

in the face of the winds of change

I often wonder

if then I’ll lose you

but then the flame rises once more

and you and I are in love again

let’s keep our love burning so bright

never cast it asunder

for some reason

like a candle with an extinguished flame

standing cold and silent

otherwise as time goes by

we may regret losing one another

along the road of life

and if we cannot get that candle of love

lit at least one more time

alone and lost apart from one another

we will regret and wonder why

we let the flame of love get extinguished

so that it no longer burns bright
