Firefly - Poem by Dennis Lambert

You are my firefly,
Amid the others.
Your cool light beckons me.

Yes I have decided,
Amid the others,
You are my firefly.

Sometimes I see you clearly,
Sometimes I lose you in the darkness,
And search with my heart for light.

I must anticipate your luminescence,
Where your pulsing light will be
And where my hands must be

To gently hold you
And make your light my own
And make your glow touch my darkness.
