Up into the sky they went,
brilliant and dazzling to the eye
sparkling flowers of green, blue and violet and then a
yellow chrysanthemum
A wonderful sight to behold.
If only for an instant in the span of time
They still soared and burned brilliantly-
just like the good times of laughter and smiles.
Mesmerizing but quick to die
I look on, watching the smoke fade away
If I closed my eyes,
Would I look up to once again see the gold shimmering lights?
It sucks to be on the other side
when you find that you’re once again
just staring into the long long night
