Only a flicker of a light
Still burns
In the beating of my heart

A flame once stood
Proud and tall
Now sits in a pile of ashes

A personality
Now doused by water
No longer warming in fame

A day where the night is dark
And coldness takes over
Gathered people stand around the hearth

To see the crumbled remains
Of the love and care
That once shone there

Only a flicker is left

Only a flicker
