Fireflies

Fireflies are fallen angels

and they still wish to glow

Don’t tell me you have lost your light

The lanterns love you so

 

The stars have brightened up the night

they know you wish to see

You need a friend to guide you home

So please, come follow me

 

Don’t worry about the wildfires

The rain is sure to come

I’ll help you keep the smoke at bay

The shadows know you’ve won

 

We need to help the others back

so leave a torch or two

careful now, the flames are hot

they’ll burn what’s left of you

 

Come along, we’re almost home

You’ve beaten your despair

We’re not out of the dark woods yet

But the lanterns will always be there
