Ner Neshama/Yahrzeit Licht

Candles burn.
The flame entrances.
She sees me there.

Transfixed, she stares
at the searing white core
commemorating
memorializing.

Burning bright,
she sees me now.

I push energy
power
to the candles
keep the flame
of grief and remembrance
burning.

It’s the only way
she’ll see me
burning brightly.
