only ashes are completed

Only rain can tumble slowly
Plummeting towards the ground
Laughing at the fate before it
Dancing softly falling down

Only sound can meet the silence
Half between a fleeing squall
Mending fissures silence opened
Building up the fallen walls 

Only embers fight the coolness
Washing round and spreading doubt
Wearing down the fight within them
Hanging on the edge of out 

Only wind can make the stillness
Tossing all the calm away
Making leaves like little children
Fleeing from the school to play

Only ashes are completed
Dying they have nothing left
Having given all for brightness
Even this their final breath

Only firelight will soothe me
Only cold will calm my heart
Only hope will shatter meaning
Beginning me again at start
