Candle in the window

I love you, my dear, every time I go

You have a way to let me know

No matter how upset I may be

I know when I return, I can always see

That signal waiting home for me

Welcoming me home with light so low

That sign so warm, that candle in the window.

A candle in the window like this always let me know that it was okay to come home, after an argument.

EDIT 19 Sept. 2016: R.I.P. Bill Hamilton.  So far, that good friend of mine is beating T-cell lymphoma, just like Mr. T.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. I love you, darling. I’ve never enjoyed arguing with you. I’ve said before that the candle was there mainly because I worried that you wouldn’t come back until you knew it was safe.


    • Exactly. Now this candle has even more meaning– we can now say it’s symbolic for our willingness to pray, think, and meditate for anyone that asks us to do so, for themselves, or their friends in need.


  2. Jak, such a loving post. Thank you. Best ~ HuntMode

    Bringing this up from the archive; #domesticviolence was an actual thing for us. (Really, really.)
