Sunsets We See
"A sunset....is what our lives should be: quiet, noble and unhurried."— C.L. Rawlins
The sun begins to dip and slide at the end of every day
It goes slowly out of sight no matter what we say
Rays, and hues and colors very bright
Lead us by the hand as we go into the night
It covers every object wherever it may shine
Wrapping it in color as if using twine
The reds, the oranges and sometimes even yellow
It's like the colors shouting or letting out a bellow
To tell us night is coming the day is at an end
The moon will soon appear our always night time friend
The colors fade as night drops in
With moonlight giving colors of a different kind of spin
Does daylight hide as sunset takes us to its nightly show
Or is it going down because there's someplace else to go
All those colors swirling right before your eyes
Bringing a soft twilight to the night awaiting sky
Is sunset part of what our life does to us every day
Slowly leading us somewhere, a place we learn to pray
Knowing that our life must end no matter what we do
Giving time to take each day and make a start anew
Before our final sunset ends the life we hold so dear
Taking us to somewhere new a place that holds no fear
Are sunsets sent to us to show the beauty that we see
Was put there to remind us of what future there will be
A beauty only He can know is waiting for us there
Something we can't learn to know or even learn to bear
A new life we can't know about, beyond our wildest dreams
Something new and beautiful not something this world seems
To know and cherish daily as we look and love and pray
A new world meant for us to follow in His holy way
So cherish every sunset as it teaches us to see
The person that our love has taught we were meant to be
I've compiled these poems of mine on sunsets to share with you. Having a day end with such beauty can only mean a better day is coming and God is watching over us.
