Only Ashes Remain - by Andrew "Andy" Kealoha Cummings

Only ashes remain
My love for you was in vain
And now a sad refrain
Is my only song
How could you be so mean
To end my beautiful dream
Of happiness supreme
That I've known so long
Now the flame of love has died
And all because of you
Tell me are you satisfied
That you and I are thru
I keep trying in vain
To start the flame once again
But only ashes remain
Of the love we knew
