A Fire Burning

By @Raemags16

Watch the fire burning so bright

Watch it consume every inch of life

See it flicker, see it swirl

See the smoke, see it curl

 

Yellow, orange; lighting up the night

The flaming danger is quite a sight

Growing, the fire puts life on hold

A living terror through times of old

 

Watch the fire burning so bright

Watch it consume every inch of life

See it flicker, see it swirl

See the smoke, see it curl

 

The heavens open, pouring rain

The sizzling fire dims from strain

It sizzles and fizzles, whispering a sigh

Growing dimmer, it begins to die

 

Watch the embers dim even more

Watch them die from within the core

See the wood, see it charred

See the land, see it scarred

 

Search through ashes for broken dreams

Scattered memories with tattered seams

Blackened pictures of times before

Crumble away and become no more

 

Watch the embers dim even more

Watch them die from within the core

See the wood, see it charred

See the land, see it scarred

 

Watch the tears as they begin to fall

See them stream down to cover all

See the pain, see the grief

See the sadness, the disbelief

 

Searching for hope but can’t hold on

To thought and feeling that used to belong

Laughter and smiles kept within the heart

Something that can never be torn apart

 

Watch the change for what might be

Watch for the future you can’t ever see

See the sun, see the sky

See the hope, see it fly

 

Searching for hope but can’t hold on

To thought and feeling that used to belong

Laughter and smiles kept within the heart

Something that can never be torn apart
