World on Fire

Updated on November 14, 2012

World on fire

Burning brightly

Come to me

Song of Passion

Song of Glory,

World on fire

Where have you been?

You once burned for me

Only for me

And I was on fire for you

Full of the zeal of life.

I could do it all

I had you

In the palm of my hand.

Now my hand is empty.

I grab at the air

Clutching nothing.

I am soon to be returned to the earth.

At times I feel that I have wasted

Time and talent.

As an infant

I cast them into the sea

The waves roared and crashed

Taking them far away

Never to be seen again.

World on fire,

I burn for you.

Rekindle the flames

Before my candle fades.

      The waves roared and crashed

      Taking them far away

      Never to be seen again.

      World on fire,

      I burn for you.

      Rekindle the flames

      Before my candle fades.

      Great words which I vote up and share. Take care and have a great day.
