Firefly shine your light,
Brighten my life,
Lead the way, through
The meadows, in my mind.
Firefly, float so high,
Grace the sky,
Hug the moon,
Drift among the tops
Of trees, be a
Beacon, in my dreams.
Firefly spread your wings,
Open up this heart,
Firefly let the light
Of love, be forever
In this life.


written after an evening walk where there were so many fireflies, they did light up the path.
