Light from a candle. It flickers and flickers until the candle has burnt down or the flame is snuffed by somebody or something. Then all becomes dark.

you were singing songs
and I quietly wished
you were singing them to me.
you kissed the crown of my head
and because I did not know what to do
I did not look at you
but to the candlelight instead.

Can"dle*light`, n.

Never went by candlelight to bed. Dryden.
