The candle had burned constantly for three years. Sophia had protested strongly at this persistent state of mourning. Nobody had listened.
She had left the door open on windy, wintry nights, hoping for a strong gust to extinguish the flame.
She had tried pinching out the flame herself, but her fingers just couldn’t seem to grasp hold of the charred wick.
She sighed, watching as the community indulged in more prayers as the third anniversary night progressed
When would they ever understand that she had wanted to pass over, that she was happy to be gone?
Living was definitely over-rated.
