Light of Life

     This evocative poem uses the flame of a candle as a metaphor for life itself. Just as a beam of light continues endlessly into space even after its source has stopped, so too the light of a person's presence in this world continues even after that light appears to have stopped. The flame of a candle is like a human soul, flickering and always trying to rise upwards. A memorial candle is lit in a house of mourning, on the anniversary of a person's death, and on the four annual days of memory (yizkor).

     This piece can be customized by special order. The artist will insert the name of the loved one in the third line of the third stanza. The yartzheit date (anniversary date of passing) in Hebrew and in transliterated English can be worked into this piece as well. One would then, always have a reminder of the correct date of observing and be reminded to again light a candle in their loved one's memory in the years to come.

Light of Life

Is a finite Flame. It burns, it glows,
It radiates warmth and beauty,
But then it fades and is no more.

We are more than a memory
Vanishing in the darkness.
With our lives we give life.
Something of us can never die;
We move in the eternal cycle of
Darkness and death, of light and life.

We kindle the memorial light as a sign of this truth.
As it burns pure and bright, so may the memory
Of our dear loved one brighten and purify our lives.

"The human spirit is the Light of the Almighty, the Eternal."
