match girl – December 10

12.10.2016

she bought me

a christmas candle

to shine in

the window

and warm my

heart

 

remembering the

little boy who

saw its orange

flame and felt

safened by

the warmth

 

like the little

match girl who

saw the angels

in the glow

before

they found her

frozen.
