Burning Embrace

Sacred flame and fire
Consecrated passion and desire
Praise and Glory be they named
Truth and Love ever ordained
This blissful frenzy, a fervor within heart
From all doubt or fear this soul depart
The grandeur of life I not conceal
In the burning embrace of this moment real.

  5. Rose Marie: Your flame always burns bright, and with your words of wisdom and inspiration you fan the flames that seem to fade in tired hearts.
