To Fan A Flame

You were the wind
A violently strong embrace one day
A kiss on the cheek the next
And still for months

You were the wind
You let me believe I could
Hold you as you held me
Or catch you in a jar for the keeping

You were the wind
That held my face to yours
And said that it was okay
With words and another stormy caress
You stirred up sweet scents around us
I could see nothing else,
Could hear no one else but you
And you were the wind

You were the wind
And I am a fire about to go out
Lest we dance another round
Yet I hardly dare to dream

You were the wind
And I am a fire left to wonder
If a fire and a wind ever could, and
You are the wind
