Little flame

Little flame,
Who's to blame
That you will go unnoticed?
Maybe me
'Cuz purposely
I didn't feed you with another stick.
One may fall
Off the beak of a crow
And you will live just a little longer.
Don't be fast
To think you'll last
That's but a miracle that happens once.
I can't see why
You don't want to die
The eternal rest is calm and sweet.
Ha, you just went out!
...But I am not proud...
Your smoke blinded me and made me see
That a little flame is what love will ever be.
Please warm me up again...
