By Charles Robert Lindholm 

She was a candle in the wind
that brightened up
the darkness of the night
with the light she
brought into my life 

She warmed my heart
with her flame
as it flickered
and fluttered
inside her soul
and protected me
from the cold
and lonely
winters of life 

My days were always
brighter with her
by my side
and for me
the sun could
not compete
with her 

A candle in the wind
that flickered
and fluttered 

A Flickering Soul
a beautiful flame
that I shall
love forever

    1. Oh, Be still my heart!! Your words of praise make my heart so happy, My Dear!! Just so you know, this is the poem that helped me be able to accept being called a poet. I was asked to read this at the memorial service for a friend’s wife for about 150 people. After looking out at everyone and reciting it I walked off the platform and sat down and silently said to myself – Well, I guess you are a poet now!!
      Your words will make my month, Dearest! I’m counting you several times over tomorrow for the blessing of your precious friendship on Thanksgiving!
