warm yourself by the fire

"In The Flicker"

In the flicker
of a thousand dancing flames
each reflecting truthly eyes
Destiny seems somehow proclaimed
triumphant over the thousand tries

A hand within the garden
now somehow holding mine
Distant hands on the eternal clock
now somehow keeping perfect time

In the flicker of the strongest heart
beat down those thousand times
awaits the flicker of that love filled breath
and thus awakens from its empty death
