Do you remember the smell of melting wax
And the captivating embrace of a candle’s flame?
Do you remember tip-toeing out of old childhood fears of strange objects in the dark?
With the quieting, comforting flame casting a glow of protection around you?
Remember you can have too much light
Sometimes you need some darkness
And just enough light to see only what’s most essential
The path just two steps ahead
And a shadow that’ll stay long after everything else is gone
All you need is just enough darkness and not too much light.
