I think because my light seems endless
People don't realise
That I only have so much of myself
And when that light is running dim
It takes my
So I can burn a moment longer
Shine a sparkle brighter
Illuminate the way
a little distance further
To always give them
just one more joule.
And because there is always another person
who will need me next, tomorrow or thereafter
I will never let my torch fall dark.
in order to love everyone,
To keep my reserves bright enough
for everyone else,
I burn myself
Into the shadows.
