It's only a tiny flame. It can light up a room just the same. It makes shadows dance across the wall. Sometimes large, sometimes small. Sometimes friendly, sometimes scary. At times sad, at times merry. It takes away my pain. And lifts my spirit to a higher plain. A soft sweet odor fills the air. I have a feeling someone cares. As I nestle into my chair. My days work is complete. As my eyelids close in sleep.
