A Single Candle

Life’s to be shared
and all it contains

The joys and happiness
along with the pains

A thousand candles may
be lit from one

With thousands of people
met before life’s done

Making their day bright
with a little smile

May give them joy 
for the extra mile

It takes little effort
some happiness to give

To another person while
this life we live!
