Not Alone

The Ragtag Daily Prompt this morning:  CANDLE
The Word of the Day Challenge:  BABBLE

And my response will be this little verse:

Not Alone

Up before the sun
peering into the night
and feeling all alone.
But no—a light! A train
chugs up the track,
its lively wheels a-babble;
its sweeping beam proclaims
another soul’s awake
to share the morning stars.

He’ll see my candle
as he rumbles by
and know life stirs
in this little house.
The engineer and I
will give a passing nod,
sharing our bits of light,
almost like a hug
in this lonely world.
