Poemetry: Giving the Light

Who would care if I poured out my light,

faded into the dark of a thousand nights?

Brighten the lives of others and dim my own,

give them all my joy and die alone?

Alone already but I’ll light a few stars

before I burn out;

find a purpose for the flame in my heart

then don the oaken crown.

Who would mourn my ember chilled?

Who with love and tears would my ashes gild?
