Firelight

     I am going to share some writings I did about 35 years a ago. I am not going to post all of them at once but one at a time.  You may ask, "LL, why post stuff that is 35 years old?"  I will say to you,  "Sometimes it is good to stroll down memory lane and reflect back to be able to appreciate the present."
     The inspiration for these little missives was a good friend of mine. There was a lot of heartache in that friendship but it has managed to endure.

Here goes:

FIRELIGHT


I sit alone by the fire light watching
Flames flickering, ever reaching
The music gently rocks my heart and
A remembered scent of you soothes my soul.
We are a time gone past

A future never told                                                         

We were haunting and mystical
We were autumn and spring.

Firelight dances across my room
I see you in the shadows on my walls
Candle light illuminates the darkness and
I long to touch your face

Close my eyes I still feel your breath against my cheek
I reached out for you and in a flicker you were gone
Winter falls outside my window, covering traces of you
Flames quietly burn, as I desire your passion again

We are a time gone past

A future never told

We were haunting and mystical
We were autumn and spring.

The fire grows dim as the sun rises
I hear the song of another day
I look for you one more time
And silently the flames fade away.
