Ashes in the Sky

Searching through the ashes Of the memory of my past. I found a dying ember Of a love I hoped would last. Tried to make it glow again, But no matter how I tried It kept on getting colder Till it finally died. Now as I sift through These ashes cold and gray My mind starts to ponder As to what I want to say There once was a raging fire Inside our bodies it did burn Thought it would burn for ever But now a lesson we did learn Our passion that we had Flowed both day and night But there were some problems That were hidden out of sight Life styles that were different Thought we could handle some But when they raised their head Just to many too overcome So now the wind is blowing Those ashes in the sky Both of us now realize That it's time to say goodby .
