The Match


A piece of wood

Once said

Light me up

But we replied

We can’t,

You need

Something more

A spark of fire

then commented

I can help with that

All I need is you

And some oxygen, too

We can be together

A fire set upon the match

Joined as one

The match burned on

Lighting up our hearts

With joy and some warmth

Together the fire and wood

Burned on as one
