Old flames

Just like a campfire

Rekindling an old flame

Can be easy or

Not so much

Cold embers

Sometimes resist new sparks

And if they reignite

They may just end up

Burning you twice

Better to let old flames

Take their natural course

Maybe the embers

Linger for a lifetime

Maybe the ashes just

Blow away with the wind

It doesn’t really matter

Be thankful for the time

You blazed bright together

In the time that you had

E.A. Fussell
