    Flames of the Fire

    I know you and I used to be part of the flame of a single big candle.

    That flame was used to light smaller candles and ignite them with that same flame.

    Now we may be two different candles

    But we are still both burning with the fire that we always did

    Your flame may be used to help light the fire that will cook dinner for a friend

    And mine to illuminate the dinner table for all to see

    We may switch roles

    Or even have new ones altogether

    Whenever there is a flame I will see you as you will see me, as we are both the fire

    Whenever I see no flame but mine

    I know that I can ignite with my flame, our flame

    And you will be there with me, doing what we do best… being fire

    Transforming the world around us for better or for worse

    If I forget that as long as my flame is burning

    so too is yours as we were once the same flame

    When my candle burns out, and my wax has melted

    I will rejoin the big candle again

    Molding my melted wax to keep the eternal flame burning

    And I will see you again as me, and we will burn eternally

    Again as one…​

    Inspired by a secret...
    But written for everyone!!!​

    the forever flame...

    ...that consumes the soul. we, each, have our role...our place in relationships path. sometimes that path venture away from the one...to create the bigger path that will follow. sometimes they merge into one...that others might see their strength...their love...their destiny. but ALWAYS they are UNITED in their love...the dreams...their future.

    THANK YOU.

    Candles can burn well separately, knowing that if need be, the other flame is available to reignite it. Loving the message here, as well as the structure. Welcome to Destee.com, continue to make yourself at home.
