I saw a fire burning.
The strong wind couldn’t quench it.
The flood came but couldn’t drown it.
I watched from a distance in anxiety wondering what it was.
Hmmm I couldn’t tell until I gave it a close look.
People tried to put it off but the more they tried, the brighter it burned. It’s strange, isn’t it?
One thing baffled me most; it had different colours, so attractive like a rainbow. Although i didn’t know how it started but I hoped to see the end of it; little did i know that it would burn forever.
I drew a little closer; then I could see clearly. It wasn’t just a fire but an harmless one… Yes! A fire of love was burning with a sweet-smelling fragrance in that mild heart. It illuminated the once darkened heart and gave it hope again.
Now I know that the fire was ignited by an attraction called LOVE.
If only it burns in every heart, then the world would be a better place.
It was such an awesome sight to behold… AT A CLOSE LOOK, I saw the strength of love.
