What Kind of Candle



What Kind of Candle

What kind of candle would I have to light
To keep my demons from my door;
To keep my past from overcoming me
And burying me forevermore?

Hmmm, how about
Buy a child ice cream, tease a friends frown,
Save a `possum that`s been hit and run,
Give a stranger my number, and get his in return?

Hmmm, how about
Give cornstalks to a neighborhood,
Never forget the fences of farmer Wood,
Give a friend a hug, take a midnight call,
And make a hay house for a tail wagging dog?

Hmm, how about
Give a trudger a place of his own,
Give him some work, let him in my home,
Give a stinker a reason to live,
And help a new one discover his legs?

Hmmm, how about
Teach a sailor how to swim,
Learn something from a Little Sioux fisherman,
I could point my hatbill up to the sky,
And give a child a shiny quarter?

Hmm, how about
Share some coffee, ship some bull,
Raise some pigs, raise some calves,
Keep it simple, visit prisoners,
Offer a ride, and offer a smile?

Hmmm, how about
After everything`s done I`d never forget
I`m a human being not a human been?
Yes, after everything`s done I`d never forget
I`m a human being, not a human been.

Those are the kind of candles I have to light
To keep my demons from my door
And to keep my past from overcoming me
And burying me forevermore.
