THE CANDLE

By 24th July 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

TO OUR BRITISH SOLDIER
I HELD THE CANDLE FOR YEARS
BUT NOW IM OLDER
I JUST LOOK BACK WITH TEARS

AND NOW I LOOK TO YOU
TO HOLD IT BRAVE AND HOLD IT STRONG
HOLD IT FOR THE MANY HOLD IT FOR THE FEW
IT WILL BURN BRIGHT JUST AS LONG

THEN THOSE WHO PASS AWAY
WILL BECOME THE STARS OF THE NIGHT
FOR IT IS YOU WHO ARE NOW MY DAY
YOU MY SOLDIER ARE THE LIGHT

AND WHEN YOU ARE TIRED OR WEAK
PASS DOWN THE CANDLE OF LIGHT
LET YOUR WEARY BONES NOT GROW MEEK
FOR NOW FOR YOU IT BURNS BRIGHT

BRITISH SOLDIER GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL
THANKYOU FOR CARRYING THE CANDLE.
