A flame once burned where embers glow
And deep inside my heart I know
Untended embers turn to ash
And I know dreams are known to crash.
Our love kindled a passion’s fire
That promised never to expire
Somehow, though, time passed us by
And our endless flame began to die
We knew a flame would leave an ember --
We’d soon have nothing to remember
Yes, unattended, embers go
And leave just ashes with no glow
To say to me, “a flame once burned”
Will bring from me this, in return,
“Only, embers, flames and sparks
Can bring light into the dark.”
Ashes, on the other hand,
Still have much at their command
In their warmth remains, you see,
Some hauntingly beautiful memories.
