Fire’s Whisper by Braidynne Brashear

                                             Sweet candlelight. 
                                Dancing in the depths of nightfall. 
                                            Sweet candlelight.
                                 Caressing the shadows all white.
                                  Wax runs down like a waterfall.
                                    It almost dies in a cool squall.
                                           Sweet candlelight.
