Starting Fires

starting-fires

I remember how the fire started

Embers condemned, forever unlit

glowing in forests uncharted

as I clawed my way from the grit

I was embers condemned, forever unlit

He was the spark, urging me to shine

A promise made as luck would have it

when we walked beneath towering pines

He was the spark, urging me to shine

Together we carved a path, openhearted

Each day, a page added to our storyline

since the day that fire started
