Poem: The candle light

It is quiet as always
I am sitting alone
I light a candle as I do every evening
the sign of hope
the sign of life
I light you every night
as I have done for many years
started in another continent
somewhere in America
then living in an automobile
alone as always
in the darkness
I did light the candle
the sign of hope
the sign of life
gives me some direction
something to think about
something to remember
memories from the past come to my mind
where I have been
what I have done
whom I have met
in different places
different nations
so far away, but so close
always alone, but happy
I light the candle
for the future life.
