Reach for the Light

The Love of the Light

I have but one day to live, that is all I can give

As I stretch out my petals with stiffness like metal

My stamens stand tall, reaching for the bright ball

As my life shines in light, a journey worthy to fight

For we come to this light, with hopes of it’s great might

Carelessly spending our life, without regard to any strife

If we waste the beauty of great light, we will live in the darkness of the deep night

Beauty can create emotionless gall, for petals will wither before they fall

Enjoy the beauty of the great light, soak up its warmth before it comes night

I have but one day to live, that is all I can give.
