I like this little tidbit. Candles are fun, aren't they? Well, anyway, it's pretty reflective and interesting enough. I also love the way you ended it here. Sorry, I know I'm on again about endings, but I guess that's my thing, eh?

Anyway, I love how throughout the whole poem you get this feeling of expectation and kind of a suppressed excitement, and then at the end, you're just like BAM! The wait is over. "and now it's time." And it doesn't even matter what the wait was for, because the poem is brought to a great conclusion and it just floods you with emotion, which is what a poem is really supposed to do.

To be short, awesome poem.

even the ancients saw the souls of their ancestors in the fire's flames. I like the imagery you put into this poem.
