I lit a candle for you today.
I didn’t get the chance to know you very well.
Today was the day your family set aside to remember you.
But it has been cancelled now.
The rain falls to the ground in a downpour.
Soon it will melt the snow away.
Spring, they say.
But it is still so cold.
The water spills forth and floods the earth.
Will anyone cry that much for you?
I feel sad for you today.
I remember the little of your life you shown me.
Yours wasn’t the first death this year.
I fear it won’t be the last.
But today I lit a candle for you.
