we started on fire
almost instantly
heat and pleasure
one in the same but
is it our fate to die the same
no more than a glowing ember
in a child's hand
at the end of the 4th
circling round and round
naught after all the glory
but a dying spark
in the night?

or shall we, hand in hand
pass on by the celebration
of independence, and find
in each other
sparklers someone else laid aside,
maybe not free for the taking
but certainly offered
at a price far lower
than the worth of the joy
contained within?

shall we search for the joy
so needed, so deserved
and laugh and dance
and light fires long into the night
burning two at a time
until its almost Christmas
and the spark still
burns brightly
as the new year turns?

I'll pray for your spark to survive Y2K ...

It reminded me "Dancing in the dark" from The Boss ...
