A FLAME ONCE BURNED

Written by: Yesha Shah

A flame of desire that once flared, burned bright Soft warmth radiated out of those shining starry eyes Fueling the flame as the dreams take flight When ambitions soared, the sky couldn't suffice! Soft warmth radiated out of those shining starry eyes That such blazed with tall hopes of the morrow When ambitions soared, the sky couldn't suffice, Just a few sparse wishes now left to borrow! That such blazed with tall hopes of the morrow Now too grounded to glance at the blue sky.. Just a few sparse wishes now left to borrow, An idle spectator as golden life passes by! Now too grounded to glance at the blue sky, Staring blankly at interwoven lines of destiny An idle spectator as golden life passes by, A void in the absence of pride, grace and dignity! Staring blankly at interwoven lines of destiny, Collecting the urges to re-ignite the last spark.. A void in absence of pride, grace and dignity To re-kindle the fire there, new journey to embark. Collecting the urges to re-ignite that last spark Fueling the flame as the dreams take flight To re-kindle the fire there, new journey to embark A flame of desire that once flared, burned bright...
