Flickering flame,

You're the candlelight

That illuminates a dinner for two.

Flickering flame,

You're the torches

That light a lone explorer's way.

Flickering flame,

You're the campfire,

That keeps a body alive through the night.

Flickering flame,

You're the house fire

That leaves a path of destruction in its wake.

Flickering flame,

You're the hot, white fury,

That snaps something inside.

Flickering flame,

You're the sudden spark

Between two people who were meant to be.

Flickering flame,

You're what I'll feel

When God reveals the One I need.
