Rating: 5.0

Oh you precious firefly,
Holding yourself in low esteem
Your light is flashing the loveliest glow,
With a spell of lemon green
Oh majestic creature,
Do not become lost with the night
If you settle for anything lesser than love,
Off they will fly to light after light
It is true, young hearts they are anxious
And though the night seems quite dead

Make sure you signals are lofty and high,

Beautiful piece, and well-crafted. Shut not your eyes, Less tears be shed... I wonder if you mean 'Lest tears be shed'. Or may be I don't see what the poet sees.

A wonderful poem with a meaningful message. " Love comes with kisses, not with fights. Save your light for the perfect one. Truth has nothing to hide." Beautiful lines from a well crafted write. And so very true.

Thank you Sandra, so many times people look for love in the wrong place at the wrong time, having raised three girls I wish I had written this poem long ago, I would’ve read it to them every night at bedtime
