Touched by your flame

 The cold wind galloped through the night
Riding with winter's relentless fury
And the trees howled with all their might
As they stood shivering in the plunging mercury

We were averse to  venture  outside
Reluctant to face the galloping beast
Taking warmth that the fireplace provided
With a hot cup  of  cocoa at least

As  we snuggled in loves sweet warmth
We  became  hypnotized by the flame
As it swayed with an elusive charm
We drifted off,  as sweet dreams came
When the fire had  died  and only ashes remained
My heart  still  glowed,  touched  by your flame
