A Scent of You

I lit a candle tonight,
As I do every night.

The candle has a scent of you,
And I'm taken away to a world of us.

I smile.

Then I cry,
Because you're no longer here,
And all I have is a candle — and a memory.

How I miss the scent of you,
On my skin,
After holding you;
After loving you.

How I long for the real scent of you.
