the fire

there's a fire on the water
putting up a fight
against a sea that fights to kill
the bright and glorious light
the battle seems to last forever
but then the light is gone
just a bounteous display of color
above the ocean it was on
and now the night begins to cool
the earth is getting numb
and not until tomorrow
will such a great light come
