Once upon a time there was a dad and 3 kids. When the kids were adults, the dad was old and Death came to take the dad. The first son, who became a lawyer, begged Death to let the dad live a few more years. Death agreed. When Death came back, the second son, who became a doctor begged Death to let his father live a few more days. Death agreed. When Death came back the third son, who became a priest begged Death to let the dad live till that candle wick burned out and he pointed to a candle. Death agreed. The Third son knew Death wouldn't come back and he didn't. Why not?

That was a nice one. Keep posting some more so that it becomes even more interesting to answer. I am just so bored of answering the same questions giving the same replies in different forms.

You did not say, if it was because it wasn't lit. Was that the right response?
