Little light of love…
In the warm summer evenings, I love to swim in the sea that is just five minutes by car from my home (if we rush – we drive, if not – it’s a perfect evening walk). There is a track to the beach through the dunes, and going to the inviting waves, we always see a little burning candle put on the sand.
For the second year – no matter rain or snow – it burns a warm flame. Like love in someone’s heart. I try to imagine a man standing every evening at this burning candle and remembering someone that will no longer be there.
The drop falls on the ground – may be a tear… How many tears have absorbed this sand for the one who will never return from the sea?
The world is big; we are lonely there. And if you found someone to share loneliness with, enjoy it. Because today is your most precious asset, and tomorrow can be just a light in the sand…
