I was a fire
Blue-flamed and hot
Fast burned I in the night

The flames consumed
All fuel to feed
And left just fading light

Within the smoke
And ash you found
A glowing ember's seed

With gentle hands
And soft caress
Upon it you did breathe

And just like that
From seed to spark
A fresh flame sprung anew

I am a fire
And from the ash
I burn once more for you
