Burn slowly


Burn slowly
On the flame of life
Burn slowly
On the flame of life

It’s a fragile dream
Lest it may shatter
Be careful while you
Light this flame

Burn slowly
Burn slowly
Burn slowly
The imminent is inevitable.

The sky never descends.
Burn slowly
On the flame of life
All i wish is to live a few moments

In the grace of your beauty
The dreams i saw through your eyes
Continue to live in my heart
But the edges of those dreams pierce my eyes

Burn slowly
Burn slowly
The imminent is inevitable
The sky never descends

Burn slowly
On the flame of life
Burn slowly
On the flame of life

Burn slowly
On the flame of life
Burn slowly
On the flame of life

It’s a fragile dream
Lest it may shatter
Be careful while you light the flame

Burn slowly....

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
