Forest fire

Sat among the embers of a forest fire

Sat here alone her plight is dire

One little girl, a little lost soul

Tears stain her blackened cheeks

She cannot be consoled

Everything in her life was just burnt down

In a forest fire where screams and shouts are the only sounds

This little soul is now beyond tears

The lost look in her eyes convey her fears

The heat still resonating like a furnace

Every thing around has now been burnt and death

Is everywhere and all around

Despite heroic efforts from so many firemen.

This little girls lost among it all

Standing all alone as the smoke palls

Charred black dress, sooty coloured hair

Blackened stained face and a fearful stare

I saw her through the burnt trees

Just over there and I told the firemen to go rescue het

But when I pointed to the spot she was no longer there

I told them what she looked like

And they just stared

And pointed to a row of bodies awaiting collection

And there I saw her laying with them

Was she an apperitions or was it her spirit

Either way she was gone now and it broke me into pieces

That poor little lost soul who lost her life this day

In the burnt out smoking forest glade

I hope she finds the ones she loved upon the otherside

For the firemen explained the whole family had died

A tragic tale of sadness and woe

My heart goes out to those

Who find themselves in Calafornia similarly exposed

To the tragic forest fires.
