Tonight I Light This Candle

A friend sent me the link to hear this and I am sharing it with you.  For me this was really hard to watch and yet it said so well what many of us feel when we light our candles for our babies.  I light candles on many of the special days...  Her birthday... Her angel day... Christmas, Easter... and some days just because I miss her... To me the candle is so signifigant because I so honestly felt like Cara was a light in my life.  Actually I want to add that she still is a light in my life.  Yes there is a shadow because I so miss her earthly physical presence, but I feel her spirit and I am grateful forever that I am her mama.  So in advance I'll tell you this song might make you cry... but it just speaks to my heart and I wanted to share it.  Hugs Elissa Cara's Mom

Tonight I Light This Candle


by Alan Pedersen
"God wrote this song.I consider myself fortunate that he trusted me to hold the pen."
Tonight I hold this candle In memory of youHoping someway, somehow, my love will shine through.I close my eyes lost in the glowThere are so many things I want you to know.
Chorus:
This candle says I love you - This candle says I miss you.This candle is saying I remember you.When I'm holding it toward heaven,It feels like you are near.If you're looking down tonight,And see this candle burning bright,It says I'm wishing you were here.
In the glow of this candle I can almost see your smile And it carries me away for a little whileTo another time, another placeWhen all it took to light up my world was your beautiful face.
Chorus
Someday, someway I'll see you againI'll hold you in my heart until then.
This candle says I love you - This candle says I miss you.This candle is saying I remember you.When I'm holding it toward heaven,It feels like you are near.If you're looking down tonight And see this candle burning bright,It says I'm wishing you were here.

Bless you for sharing this - the words are so beautiful, and I\'ll have to go to the link and listen to the song - I too will always love my son Shaun - no matter where his spirit is and I\'ve been enlightened to the afterlife - with signs, and feelings that he is close to me. (((Hugs)))

The words are beautiful and the ritual of lighting a candle in rememberance of our children is indeed a time or reflection, rememberance and love. Thank you for posting this song. Truly your friend, Barb
