The Golden Flame


I gaze into the golden flame and see a spark of light
As it fades I look away
The ending of a life

No mortal life has ended
But an earthly one at that
The flame has set on a day,
The darker light will rise
The ending of a life

The tragic days, the doleful days
As one may presume, would only exist in dreams
Of the ending of a life

I could perceive that an ending may be sad,
I may mourn for the ending,
But the ending of this life is not sorrowful at all
But a joyous occasion
To live another day

I gaze into the golden flame, rising on the hills
A spark of light, igniting in the sky
Turning the darkness that was suspended over all
To a new light giving strength to any inhabitants
As it reaches the peak
It becomes the golden blaze
