Scented Candle

A scented candle

When ignited,

Lit up fragrantly

Though the candle melts

It brightens the surrounding

And spreads its fragrance

Without any regrets,


The candle gets extinguished

Burning fire stops

Filling the place with darkness


Through being affectionate

and with kind nature

She spreads love and happiness

To the needy when in need,

Sometimes, in return she gets hurt

Yet, her kindness prevails

with no expectations


But one day she might disappear

And in her absence,

They all will feel the sadness
