Burn Me Bright

The lone sun drowns slowly in the oceans deep
While I stand on the shore with a heart to pray
For hope, peace and strength in this dark night

The million stars bring no love or trust to keep
While those tides hit hard and thrust me away
And the skin of my feet trembles like their light

The white of the moon is just too fickle to seep
While solitude strikes I wish to hold just a ray
For that will let me stay still with all my might

The fire within for long is in a unkindled sleep
While I wish for a beacon to hold me if I stray
And all I need is your spark to burn me bright.

This is so beautiful Raksha! It makes me think of the blasts and how we need to desperately need to hold on to something hopeful in these dreary times.

Even in the dark phase of life, there is something that holds on to hope...and that something lies within us.
