A single candle remains lit on a mound of dry leaves It's a cold lonely windy night in the baron field Will the candle stay lit and guide me through the resolute plains Or will it extinguish & leave me here stranded Please, oh god, please stay aflame & lead me to enlightenment Could the flame blow awry & cause the leaves to become a wall of fire and block the way I started to walk cautiously because I don't know what's ahead The wind remains my enemy with every trembling breeze The air blew in one swift movement knocking the candle over The walls of leaves went up in flames but not as chaotic as expected The true path of enlightenment was shown forth I glided down the warming trail of true bliss
