Fire sizzles against waters, vast
A mere reflection of the past

Day goes by, again, returns
Still the fire, there, does burn


Sleep now, in the evening glow
This final resting place, you go

So sad we can’t forever stay
Why must it always be this way?


When time reminds us, day is done
And with the earth, we become one

Much like the fire that leaves the sky
We will, at last, need say goodbye


Author’s Note:  I wrote this poem with a heavy heart.  There has been so much sadness this past year or so, and still, it continues.  My heart goes out to all who lost loved ones… โค
