Frozen flame:

The candle burnt itself out steadily,

She was destined for this frozen vacuity,

Tirelessly, she kept sacrificing herself,

The frozen flame burnt for the benefit of the family,

Non one noticed how she burnt at both ends,

Appearing at the crack of dawn every morn,

Everyone sought comfort in the heat,

Yet no one asked her for a refill,

So it was no wonder that once she emptied herself on the candle stand,

Everyone clamored for an immediate replacement.
