"I light this candle today, in honour of you
remembering your life, and all the times we've been through.
Such a small little light the candle made
until I realized how much in darkness it lit the way.
All the tears I've cried in all my grief and pain
what a garden they grew, watered with human rain.
I sometimes can't see beyond the moment, in hopeless despair
but then your memory sustains me, in heartaches repair.
I can wait for the tomorrow, when my sorrows ease
until then I'll light this candle, and let my memories run free."
Lighting a candle in tribute of those who have passed is a centuries old tradition that allows us to express what we cannot communicate with words. By lighting a remembrance candle we remember our loved ones gone and honour their life and memory. A candle is a symbol of the spirit, and brings darkness into light.
