The Flame

The Flame

A woman with a beautiful,
bright, warm soul
and an envious, spiritless man
loved each other.

This love was dark… mistreated by
Pills, Drugs, Booze and Abuse.
Slowly, the woman’s soul grew faint,
a smoldering fire..
She became weak.
In place of her soul
was anger, pain, hate, remorse…

From this strange love came a baby,
innocent and pure.
The child gave the woman strength
to prevent her soul from being forgotten.

The angry man had a friend.
He was quiet, gentle with a soft expression.
His soul, bruised and unloved,
and in his eyes a flicker of hope.

As if by magic, or perhaps true Love,
her soul returned
motherly and full of light.

Two lives,
both a cure for the other.
Each a final piece of the puzzle.

A woman, a man, and a baby
created a new Life together.
They shut out darkness.

Although the past still echoes
in their minds,
Together they have the passion
and power to persevere.

United by Love,
their Life will be Good.
