Once a tiny flame of fire was
jumping, playing full of glee.
All were admiring its charm
a moth got obsessed by its beauty.
He made up his mind that he will
steal the golden flame and take home.
He wooed the flame swirling around
and the flame swayed toward him.
Thinking he has won his flame
he stretched his wings to her
and asked the flame to ride;
soon his wings were aflame.
Even though he thought he had
his love in his life forever
little did he knew that all
lovers are not blessed to be together!
