Pilot Light of Youth

I was young once.
I once had that fire that burned in my belly.
Phrases that once set my teeth on edge
I now find comforting.
Things that I despised
I find I can now tolerate.
Places I swore I’d never return to
Have been calling my name.
I once had that crackling sparkling energy that I see in your eyes.
I know what it is.
I’ve seen it in my own reflection a thousand times.
But years have passed.
The storms raged and somewhere between here and there I lost sight of it.
I lost that fire that burnt my bridges and built my bilges.
Yes I’ve grown beyond that fire seat you sit upon.
But I am still young.
I know in the years to come I will see more and moer of that fire
Of that great desire
Burning out in my heart.
I only hope
I pray
That I will never lose the love of life.
Never lose that fire completely.  
Never let my pilot light go out.
