Fire of hope

Deep within a black forest
Kindles a blazing fire of hope
It dances to rid the dark
While a devoted soul stands by 
Warmed by the intense flame
But even darker times rush in
When prayers are never answered
When wishes are never granted
When dreams are never real
The soul steps away from the light
Then the fire dies 
Though a single ember burns inside
Darkness presides and the heart fails
Questions are asked but none answered
The soul finds courage to look again
In the ashes a burning ember is found
A roaring fire of hope rekindles
