Life is too short
Fireflys told me so
They said life will pass you
Though it seems to move slow

They whispered this secret
Upon our short meeting
The flicker they lent
Unbearably fleeting

They said Dear,
Attempt not to cage us
To think this would stretch light
Is simply outrageous

Your grasping and keeping
Is really quite rash
Try Dear, Instead
To enjoy the flash

For beauty, when captured
Does wither and rot
And our light will die down
If we’re kept in one spot

So Dear, take a seat
Enjoy the show
And maybe one day, Dear
You too, will glow.
