Thank You for Internal Light




Among the dying flowers

With lantern, I abide

Under petals singed by life

My flame and I now hide

In the Spring of my own birth,

a flare illumined wide

And in Summer, challenged the sun

with all my foolish pride

Now this Autumn clings to me

like a loving bride

Dim your light, it whispers

and cannot be denied

Winter will not wait to call

and youth, it does subside
