A Flame to Smile by

Standard

 

Candle head a flame

To smile by in brief

A flicker in the eye reflected

Lash to shield the glare

We stare right in the eye

Of time to see

When all is said and done

We are just this little flickering

Reflection of our stare

Into the eye of dark we do

We dare to fire

This wisp we are

This spark of light

For this moment only

Triumph of our swimming

In the great and becoming

Oceanic

One and all
