Default Burning Embers

Burning embers
fading from sight
losing their warmth
losing their light.

Those flames flickered,
faltered, then died.
The warmth of your touch
cold ashes inside.

That fire will not live
on passions alone
the heart you must give
or that too, will be gone.

Like the Phoenix
we too shall rise.
Out of those ashes
to fly into the skies.

Even the Earth
replenishes its soul.
New grass grows
where that fire has grown cold.

Only in truth
will trust flourish.
Fed with passions,
souls nourished.
