A Poem by Rybird

Every now and then, a song comes to me that stays in my head for extended periods of time....Firefly is one of those songs. Its haunting , melodic sounds wrap around your mind and you close your eyes,

Firefly   by [email protected]

I saw a fire fly tonight,
I saw her flash once, maybe twice
Then she flew behind the tree
I went to look so I could see

A dancing girl up on the street
She waved me once maybe twice
Then said come one lets go
And started her wayward stroll

I followed a fire fly tonight
She flashed me once maybe twice
She spread her wings so I could see
The beauty that life could bring

As she took me up the stairs
I marveled once maybe twice
She said close the door it’s fine
And said to make her all mine.

I caught a fire fly  tonight
She flashed me once maybe twice
I let her go so she could fly
And will always wonder why

I  embraced a fire fly tonight
She flashed me once maybe twice
As she flew into a dark sky
She flashed me twice to say goodbye.
