Glimmering Tears

The magic was lost

Tears glimmered in her sad eyes

How did this happen?


The fire consumed all

Destroying her home and life

Oh! To turn back time


Once a joyous home

Turned to ashes and rubble

Her beloved gone

  1. The final line, “Her beloved gone,” is powerful. It really draws the entire story of the poem together. Reveals the incredible impact of the fire. Beautiful piece!
