Glowing Brighter

Glowing Brighter

A Poem by Gerry Legister

The lamp in our hearts will burn into a brighter glow


Old flame, I hear your name
Whispering wild heart's desire,
Burning restlessly untamed,
Hot flames unwilling to surrender.

Old flame, the freshman years plant our name,
In defining moments appearing stronger,
With loyal pleasures happily gained,
Circling untamed in the ring of fire.

It's a fire seal up within my bones,
I can't resist mentioning your name,
The warmth of love come and goes,
And memories burning like a flame.

Glowing brighter up through the night,
Renewed oil, keeps the flame alive,
To meet the purity of revival sunlight,
And wait upon afternoon beauty to arrive.

Like the rainbow, keeping promises,
Old flame, you are a light to brighten my desire,
Stealing thunder and joy from the clouds,
I cannot keep the candle burning forever.

The flame is glowing now, it was bright before,
Exposure to the wind crumpling the embers,
Part of this worlds destruction accrue,
And trapped the flame with cold errors.
