there are candles burning

there are candles burning
around a high school track tonight.
every candle has a name.
we light the candles to remember
and honor
and send lights up to heaven
like whispered prayers.

there are candles burning tonight.
there is one for my Mama.
and there is one for me.

I can't sleep, thinking of all those candles lit
for all those hurt
and wrecked
and lost
and found
by cancer.

there are candles burning tonight.
there is one for my Mama.
and there is one for me.

Vallejo Relay is only 8 days away, Aug. 6th. If you are in the vicinity, please come to the Luminaria ceremony that night at 9pm, when I will be the survivor speaker! I'm so excited and so so nervous. My Good Witch will be there too!
