Burn - Poem by Darryn John Murphy

If I sparked the fire that burns
Deep within my heart and soul
Would the reflection of my light
Glisten in my eyes

If I cast a shadow over the bay
As the day light slipped away
Would you feel the sadness of my tears?
Would you understand the heartache and the pain?

For if I burned just like a candle
In the middle of the night
Would the essence of my flame
Shine across the heavens?
Would I be the only light?

I will burn for you
In the middle of the night
I will be there to hold you
Till the early morning light
