The Fire

The Fire

The Fire

The fire is burning,
inside once again.
The candle is dimming,
for you my lover, my friend.

The fire it spreads,
out of control.
It takes hold of my heart.
It takes hold of your soul.

Nothing can contain it,
try as they might.
So we put on a good show,
and put up a good fight.

The fire now over.
The candle is no more.
The fire was ferocious.
We all knew the score.

The fires called cancer.
The candle your life.
We are all heartbroken,
you ran out of fight.

This fire is a killer,
that affects one in four.
I hope and I pray,
it doesn’t knock at your door
