Love triumphs

 Nothing remains to kindle my desire
The sparks of love are nowhere to be found
The fire's warmth has been replaced by a chill
And a feeling of  sadness  burns through my soul
The embers of love are scattered across the ground
Becoming the ashes of what used to be

No chance left to rekindle the fire
That  once blazed between us
The fiery sunset paints the sky with orange hues
The once glorious blaze now just  a flicker on the sea
Like our love it slowly fades away
Its dying flame brings a flood of tears

But  the flame of love will one day blaze anew, like the phoenix
It will rise to light the dawn of a love that's true
                                    ~~
