Just something that came to me...

Eternal Flame

Today I saw your shadow disappear
To where, I don't know..
I lit a candle in your name
The applause at the end of a show

An eternal, burning flame
Shining bright
To find your way home

A cold tide has swept over my life
No more warm skies on my face

I knew this day would come..
But I feared it anyway

The castle of my heart
Is now cold and dark
What once was a dream..
It now our reality

No country can divide..
No ocean can separate

Love was not our destiny
I shall love thee evermore..

Beautiful... I stay with it for a while...

"An eternal, burning flame
Shining bright
To find your way home"...
