Where Frozen Embers Still Burn

Where Frozen Embers Still Burn

Grace holds the fire of past bliss
spiritual love so dearly do I miss
Family greatly missed now passed on
Fire of Love once burned so strong

Still smoldering in my yearning heart
embers burning still from the start
Bright orange the early mourning flame
gusts of blazing heat anything but tame

A wind blasts deep into my heart's glow
blue flames burst forth, grow n' grow 
The roar of fire leaps out of bound
into sweet memories laying all around

Visitors walk in from bright crackling fires
touching my heart, love it so inspires
Dad holds me again ever so firm and tight 
Grandpa sings to my soul sweetly all night

Embers are now crackling in a mighty roar
Happiness spreads into soul's open door
Baby brother stands to hold my hand
Shouts love, love you, again and again

My mind knows they all are passed on
yet here they are so lovingly shown
All from a burning ember deep in my soul
Mighty flames burn our love into a whole 


Note: "mourning" flame , is not a typo.

    Robert this is so beautifully touching my sweet friend! It brought tears to my eyes as I read it as I thought of all the precious loved ones now passed on that I hold dear in my heart as well. I miss them terribly but I know they will always be with me and one day we will be together again.Beautiful write hon'! :)
