Emily’s Dying Embers

EMILY’S DYING EMBERS

Once a very darling child,

a flame kindled from naught.

Her soul coated with gild,

a pure soul to be caught.

The evils of the earth

found a victim in her.

Fires died in the hearth,

and one could only leer.

The radiance was gone,

and her family suffers.

What once brilliantly shone

are now dying embers.
