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.
