Candlelight

written by: Barbara Deraoui

@brmaxwell

 

Even in darkness, there will be a lit candle to show the way

We just have to believe

Its light will be enough to light the world

We just have to believe

Even in times of hardship things will work out

We just have to believe

Even when there’s hate, love will win out

We just have to believe

When darkness is all around in the end light will prevail

We just have to believe

Light a candle and help light up the world
