Something for Steven

Embers of you

your campfire once was burning
so beautifully high and bright
and everyone was gathered around your flames
to feel your warmth, your love and light

many years later when i arrived
i found your fire had long died down
i had missed you completely, and so i started to cry
because you were no longer around

i was sitting alone by your campfire circle
when i felt a warmth rising up from the ground
i saw crackling wood chips that were still all aglow
in orangey-reds, yellows and browns

i may have missed your campfire
but there's still the loveliest afterglow
these embers of you are eternally burning
and everyone's love for you makes them grow
