Fire of love glows bright at first;

Passion quenching lover’s thirst;

Makes hearts beat so fast it seems;

nothing to dull; the light that beams.

Moments spent in love’s embrace;

Holding each heart; like fragile lace.

Muttering words that sooth our soul;

Sweet words whispered lightly roll;

From lips that touch with gentle kiss.

Filling heart's hope of lasting bliss;

Promise of undying love is spoken

Assuring hearts will not be broken.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fire of love glows bright at first;

now it quenches not one’s thirst.

Only embers burn; gone the fire;

without its flame there's nodesire.

Fire extinguished; our love is done;

Gone are hearts that beat as one.

Two lives separate; forever broken;

silent lips;empty eyes have spoken.

Cannot make the other love; I know.

What choice is there; but let love go?

Our love; it burned so bright at first;

but without passion; there is no thirst.
