Shadows dance on the edges
of a bonfire lit night.
Stars twinkle in delight
seeking love out there tonight.
Stories emerge, shy at first
spring surprises, coaxed on by
warmth of smiles, sparkles in eyes.
Lyrics ring out loud,
chasing away darkness
that tries to creep in.
It will never win ,even as shadows
hold out hands to grasp
a stray tear rolling down from a sad eye.
Bonfire words, true, by your side.
