Innocence and Fire

there was a time when love was simple

a clear and burning light that banished night

a gift given openly into acceptance

and all the world seemed clear and bright

my heart afire, i never dreamed of shadows

when love was young

a daisy chain could say it all

the days were never numbered

when we were still immortal

love and passion easy, my heart afire

the time of innocence is past

not all is ever as it seems

dark walls surround the garden

this world is harsh and shatters dreams

i am far older than i was

a steadfast heart will find a way

if we have mercy for each other

take my offered hand and grasp it

where doors are locked there is another

a heart afire can burn down walls
