Burn me bright

The sun drowns slowly in the oceans deep
While I stand silent on the shore and pray
For peace and strength, and the right

The countless stars through the clouds peep
While those tides hit hard and thrust me away
And my feet tremble in this dark night

The white of the moon is too fickle to seep
While solitude strikes I wish to hold one ray
For that will let me stay still with all my might

The fire within is in an unkindled sleep
While I wish for a beacon to hold me if I stray
And all I need is your spark to burn me bright
