FiRe...!


My tiny flame...

I lit a tiny fire,
a wee lil' flame,
to burn nine nights,
praying peace came.

I asked of Him,
watching the vapor coil,
give Dad much needed vim,
long is his toil.

give Mom freedom,
may her worries abate.
give my sister wisdom,
as she does lucubrate.

watch those precious to me,
distanced from my sight
sincerely i ask of Thee,
protect them with your might,

so i lit a tiny fire,
a wee bit of flame,
even when things seem dire,
happiness came.

i keep careful watch
fill it with sesame oil,
clean its wick,
sleep with an open eye...

...for my hopes lie
in the endurance of my flame
nine nights it musn't die,
till joy and goodness came.

2 lost souls found themselves in my mirror....:
