Firefly - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

You don't want to hurt the way I'm hurtin
Deep these daggers in this heart of mine
The day's long past since my shows final curtain
To scrounge a short piece of somethin
I have to wait in line
I drink to soothe my pain away
A Makers Mark to end my day
Again, I dream a dream of you
so very far away

What are you dreaming of
or do you lie awake at night
Firefly, you do the town
with all the crowds you gather round
The main spotlight on you so blinding
is it peace in your masterpiece you're finding

If the Heavens should again part The Sea
and your light should fall on me
would you share a cup of coffee
give a second look at me
Cut a better deal between us
than two for you and one for me
Would you turn your light down low
Or burn white hot to dim my glow
This is inside information
I'd most truly like to know
Would you stay a while longer
before you're off to your next show

Firefly, what happens now
Will you burst with pride be bold
When all the glitter isn't gold
Does it matter anyhow
Sing it loud
do us proud
Key of G
6/8 time
drop your rhyme
oh Firefly
how you
shine
shine
shine
