This is beautiful! My favorite line: now sixty candles nearer death, - what a neat description of the passing of time! I enjoyed this very much!

What a thought-provoking poem. I love the title, too. Very, very good writing:)
This brought tears to my eyes. I often don't get poetry. It often goes over my head, but this piece went right to my heart.

The "sixty candles nearer death" line was so hauntingly penned. Your metaphor is beautiful! You've written another master-piece!

'Sparkling' is one of my favorite words, and this poem was truely sparkling.
