Lost Light



The smoke hangs like haunted haze

Though the fire has been out for days

These lingering and languishing fears

Astringent to eyes filled with tears


Our little flame burning so bright

Has ceased her gift of flickering light

Being left without her contagious spark

We live in a world a little more dark


How will others now come to know

Her love, her light, her warm soft glow

How do we trek the arduous night

Without Fiery words to give us sight


A sadder world without your voice

Fond memories now the only choice

But we will always her shine remember

Our hearts warmed by her radiant ember
