I will always burn for you

candle light
I held it so close
afraid it would go out
afraid to let it burn me
held far enough away
to satisfy both
but close enough
to warm me
when the wind blew it near
I observed  its flicker
mesmerized
but too strong a wind
might blow it out
so I sheltered it once more
and then while I wasn’t looking
realized
it had been snuffed
and I wasn't allowed
to re-light it
