My Burning Flame

I came into the world immortal,

and grew up immortal,

until the day I married and we became a family.

I contemplated Life's fragility.

Fate was no longer 'mine' but 'ours.'

When 'ours' was torn from me,

I felt the pain.

Myra did not go gentle into the night.

She lived each day.

My bright and burning flame.
