The Flame

Through the years
the pain would bring
a million tears
imagining

the world as it could have been
if only we had acted on the love
that heaven sent and hearts had seen
within the moments of

the summer love that ends in sorrow
here and gone between the beat
of yesterday and new tomorrows
brought back within the summer's heat

yet through it all, the love that streamed
into young hearts remains
recalling all the dreams we dreamed
and ever will the flame

kindled then remind us of
each moment lived within the love
of youth and innocence entwined
in those days when you were mine
