Inspiration for the title?
We were at Kinmel Hall doing some singing in a candlelit room.
Victoria Harvey, then about 3 years old, noticed the wax running down a candle.
She said: “Mummy… why is that candle crying?”


In the evening light
My love lights a candle
We listen to a symphony
And the candle cries

She holds my hand
And we are together
The rhapsody unfolds
And the candle cries

Two become one
Our bodies lie entwined
She smiles at me and sighs
And the candle cries


As the music fades
The pale light of dawn comes
This flame will not burn again
But our love has no end
