The fire flies began their majestic dance,
A waltz of growing light.
It was as if small candles
Magically filled the void of inky space.
How could something so simple,
As fire flies
Scintillating in darkness,
Be so beautiful?
In considering the answer to that question,
I am reminded of this incontrovertible truth…
The pure, uncomplicated things in this life
Are often the most magnificent,
So it is in my life,
I need nothing more,
Than to be captured by the vision of your beauty,
To remind me of what’s really important.
The challenges and worries of my life,
The pending darkness that they portend,
Cannot dim the brightness,
And warmth of you.
Know that your brilliance,
Fills the void of darkness in me…
