Sitting by the bonfire

Sitting by the bonfire, the stars fell upon us
We were young enough to hold its light with our dreams
But then we grew, and outgrew ourselves
Now only the stars remember the dreams we left

And yet a fire still burns
the fire we carry in our hearts, forever burning
reminding us to sit and watch the stars
and be like the bonfire that burns, ever-still
full of dreams of a child, alive
with a Soul.
