Long Ago Image

I saw a picture of who you used to be

And wondered if I’ll ever meet him

I saw him dancing happily

As the winds rose up to greet him

Nothing could wipe that smile of glee

As he danced in freedom

The man, the one you used to be, well he was in Eden

With a torch held over his head

But then the serpent came, and started to dim his flame

It grew smaller that torch he held

The flame grew colder as it slowly bled

I saw your torch grow to nothing

But a match you held, and hid it in your pocket

Your Eden had turned to dust

But now I wonder

If the dark gets to stifling,  and you’re tired of seeing shadows

Would you pull out your match and light it?

Just to see these caverns
