A firefly

Once upon a time long back indeed,
When the whole world was fast asleep,
As the somber night had covered all in coldness,
Cried a lone girl in her helplessness.

She cried and cried and sobbed some more,
When a glint of light fluttered at her door.
It looked brilliant in its radiance,
As a twinkle of hope in darkness.

It flew here and there and here again,
Enthralled, the girl saw it even in her pain.
Captivated was the girl deep,
A firefly lulled her to sleep.
