Firefly - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

You don't want to hurt
the way I been hurtin'
'deep these daggers
in this heart of mine'
The day's long past
since my big shows final curtain
To scrounge a short piece of somethinnow
I have to wait in line'
I drink
to soothe my pain away
A Makers Mark
to end my day
I dream a dream of you
so very far away
Firefly
I wonder what you're dreaming of

or do you lie awake at night
Firefly you do the town
and all the crowds you gather round
Is the light on you so blinding
Is their peace in your masterpiece
your finding
If the heavens again could
part The Sea
and your spotlight
should fall on me
would you share a cup of coffee
give a second glance 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 information


I'd most surely like to know
Can 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 that glitters 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
