Holy flame

Oh holy flame,

burn ye on,

burn ye till

all is gone

and only the

bones and

the ashes

that were you

remain.

 

Oh holy flame,

full of the fire

and the passion

of life,

you could burn

slowly

and make

this mortal flesh

last

so that

your flame

is only just

visible

with a soft

incandescent stir.

 

But instead you

wind it up

and flood

the whole room

in vibrant glory.

 

Oh holy flame,

burn ye ever,

ever onwards,

lighting fully

with all that you

are

and can ever

hope to be.
