One Little Candle

Tonight I sat down to play piano around 10pm.
I found a great song in a song book my grandma gave me a long time ago.
The name of the song is: "One Little Candle."

When the day is dark and dreary, 
and your way is hard to find,
don't let your heart be weary, 
just keep this thought in mind:
It is better to light just one little candle 
than to stumble in the dark; 
Better far that you light just one little candle,
all you need's a tiny spark.
If we'd all say a prayer that the world would be free,
the wonderful dawn of a new day we'll see.
And if everyone lit just one little candle, what a bright world this would be. 


  1. I have never really heard you sing. You have a beautiful voice.

  2. Thank for the poem. Tomorrow is "Poem in Your Pocket" Day and now I have one to carry around.

  3. This makes a strong run at my favorite Emily song on YouTube. Wish you'd share more. They are good. Thanks for this. It's wonderful.

  4. Thanks for the nice comments, dear friends! I appreciate it. :) It is fun to sing and play.
