I Light A Candle

Today I stand lighting a candle

For the girl who became too much to handle

Too difficult to love, to trust, to understand

For the girl who let it get, so out of hand

 

I light a candle for her gracious soul,

Nowadays as black as coal.

For this sick and twisted humanity,

Slowly drove her to insanity.

 

I light a candle for the one I can never set free

This candle, I light, for the girl I used to be.
