    eighteen years
    conquests and defeats
    but we’re still here
    like a slow burning candle
    that is you
    always focused on the future
    always true to your beliefs
    and you know me
    better than i know myself
    that i live with my heart first
    face consequences later
    and yet you are always there
    to pick up the pieces
    even when i lash out at you
    like a slow burning candle
    you just blow on the flame
    recreate that spark
    quietly speak my name and refrain
    because your love for me runs deep
    and i need that like i need your touch
    in my sleep
    just knowing you’re here
    and being with you
    after eighteen years
    it has become a steady stream
    a river that flows
    and sometimes splits
    but always returns
    to a steady course
    you are my slow burning candle
    the flame in my heart

    Go head then!

    You have much to be proud of and what a wonderful way to say...that that slow burning candle may flicker but never really fade away! You give all of us single/and waiting hope.

    Blessings on ya House!
