Moments

A candle burns with the brightest of lights

Like it knows for whom it's been lit for

When it was said there was disbelief

It couldn't have happened

When there was silence, there was a revelation

The hurt was there accompanied by pain

In that brief silence a decision was made

I put aside myself to give comfort to you

You needed it and I was the one to give

Words fail me, so do memories

Every emotion in me is new and foreign

I'm at a loss as to act

Should I cry or hold back

I do not know

I only know that there was a moment where you needed me to be
