THE FOUR CANDLES!!!
The four candles burn slowly
The ambiance was so soft you could hear them talking.
The first on said
“I AM PEACE!
However no can keep me lit,
I believe i will go out”
Its flame rapidly diminishes and goes out completely.
The second one said
” I AM FAITH!
Most of all, i am no
So it doesn’t make any sense
That i stay lit any longer.”
When it finished talking, a breeze softly blew on it putting it out.
Sadly, the third spoke in its turn
“I AM LOVE
I have got the strength
To stay lit. people put me aside
And don’t understand my importance.
They even forget to love those
Who are nearest to them.”
And waiting no longer it goes out.
A child enters the room and sees three candles no burning
” why are you not burning?
You are suppose to stay lit
Till the end.”
Saying this the child begins to cry..
Then the fourth candle said
” don’t be afraid while i am
We can relight the other candles,
I AM HOPE! “
With shining eyes, the child took the candle of hope and lit the other candles.
The flame of hope should never go out from your life and that each of us can maintain HOPE, FAITH, PEACE and LOVE!
