The Spark

I lit a candle in the dark
When it burned out there remained a spark
And I thought of you
I hope you think of me too

Our romance was sparked by a glance
And our eyes began to dance
Hands meeting at an inopportune time
And our secret meetings each week at nine

No one knew of what we shared
Our families had to be spared
Age played a very big part
And now I’m left with a broken heart

We ran away to be alone
And to have a happy home
When they found us they did not care
That it was a life we wanted to share

Our families said this can never be
And sent you far away from me
So I light a candle in the dark
And remember you as my burning spark

The Spark
