During the darkest times a solitary candle can sometimes be enough to light the way and if you light more candles it's going to be a lot brighter and it won't be dark anymore.
Now I want to share this and offer it to all my friends and hope that when the darkness falls in your life you will remember this and realize that there is always light even at the darkest times.

Broken vows and shattered dreams
Bright future that suddenly dims

The heaviness of pain and sorrow
Making you feel like thereís no tomorrow

You start feeling youíre all alone
Facing this cruel world on your own

Everything is looking so bleak
You feel your soul getting very weak

At times like these just close your eyes
Listen to these words so wise

Touch a friend and see the spark
Friendship is like a candle in the dark

Touch more friends and it gets brighter
Making you feel a whole lot better

Until suddenly itís dark no more
You have finally reached the shore

So when darkness falls do not fear
Think of friends who are sincere

Just reach out and touch a friend
Someone who will stand by you till the end

Let their laughter ring like bells
Light your way with friendship candles
