Makes No Difference

Makes No Difference

When your candle flickers out,
there’s nothing more to be said.
When your candle flickers out,
all the good, the bad, and the sad,
there’s no time to straighten out.

When your candle flickers out,
you think you left a legacy behind,
but all you left was the dash.
The dash stands for the beginning and the end,
when your candle flickers out.

One day your candle was burning bright,
but now the candle’s out.
It doesn’t make a difference of how good or how bad you’ve been,
it still comes down to the dash.
It is your beginning and your end,
and now the candle’s out.

Of the major battles of the war, Stones River had the highest percentage of casualties on both sides, including a number of prominent Philadelphians.
