Yearning

And the embers lie in my heart

Buried deep, deep down

Of what was once a burning flame

A raging fire, an inferno, unbound.

 

And the embers lie in my heart

Ignored, neglected, shunned

Waiting for a touch that will no longer come

Just one touch – enough to make me burn.

 

And the embers lie in my heart

And I just let them be

Knowing that the touch is lost

Hoping that it would yet be.

 

And the embers lie in my heart

Next to my bundle of memories

Of the places, the heights you took me to

Of the places we could have been.

 

And the embers lie in my heart

Of the passion we used to share

Warm enough to lend warmth on a cold winter night

Cool enough not to scorch me with their brilliance bright.
