It will allow me to think beyond today

I will light a candle for myself
To warm up my tears,
I catch myself between my tears between my annoyance
Between my love
Between my loneliness
That's really not that far.
I have always been a constant in my life
Anyhow, those experiences left me feeling loved
Leave me blind now.
I picked up a candle and lit it,
To wake up my smile
To ascertain the path in the darkness.
In the luminosity of my day.
How firm is my love,
How potent is my life?
Tonight,
Rainfall and snow will come again
The slightest wind will blow it over
Like a star that shoots across the night sky,
It grows up as high as it can go
This takes me to my life's mission
And
I light my candle solely
Standing.
Still holding my hand,
I am just about to start something,
I see
Sleepless at night,
Yet sitting in the darkness,
I'm not willing to compromise
Frightened of losing myself again.
I light my candle for me.
