The Story of Light: A Wish for Brighter Days Ahead

The story of Light

Is as a lighted candle

That first flicker of light

Day 1 when we were born.


One simple candle

Then birthday after birthday

Lights one after another

Celebrating an ever expanding

Reach of light

Charming and magical

When we think about it…


As the candles lit up

Everyone releases the promise

Of warmth and joy

And that special bonding hope

Made brighter by sharing

One’s light by

Overcoming darkness…


A blooming of fellowship

And joy of friendship

A glimpse into a distant future

Of moving close to Home

When our tasks on earth is done.


So burn gently and brightly

But don’t burn out of your time

Where there is darkness

Reach out

And share the light

Inspire others

Let perfect friendship bloom!.

Enjoy the time of your life

Have many happy birthdays

And blessings and more

Brighter days

And years to come!
