THE FIRE INSIDE

by

Meindert Jan van Wijk


Dedicated to: Dzeržina van Wijk

Given by the Lord himself
This energy to forfill our duty
Giving us the Power to Love
This burning flame deep inside.

Given by Us so the new born
To care and share this Flame
Give the newborn the energy
To forfill, giving through that Flame

Giving, after forfilling our duty
Alike the Phoenicians burned down
Arose out of the ashes
Given out Us, new life a chance

Returned this tiny flame of Love
Back to our Lord who created Us
We forfill our own duty to Him
Wherefore He created Us.

At the End of creation
The flames will return
To the big flame of fire
To Him, our Creator, our Lord.
