When the flame is dying...

When the flame is dying
Don’t do anything
That can set it on fire again
Be still

Be careful and be wary
For a dying flame
Can be easily set ablaze
Again

A wind blown the wrong way
Soft whispers too
Even a tiny flint can set it
Aflame

When the burning has stopped
Be still and be thankful
No need fighting back
There’s no more threat

So when the flame is dying
Just let it be…
Let it die… let it fade…
Let go

The most sensible thing to do Roy. Let it be and let it die. Good that you know this. Cheers.

Well said. What will be will be and we cannot force anything.
