Sunsets of My Heart
Romanced by the Sun
"They may as well have called the sun a ball of flaming joy." ~Star Richés
I don't think there is anyone that has lived, and who is alive today, in this entire universe that has not been lavished, 'kissed', or romanced by the sun. That is one of the most amazing privileges Mother nature has given us as humans. Yet, for many, we don't just take her for granted, we fail to give her credit for, what Jessi Lane Adams described as, "the epitome of benevolence, of life giving, warmth giving and happiness giving". How gloomy our life would be, denied of sunshine, sunlight, sunsets and sunrise.
THE SUN OF MY LIFE
You spoil me, and how I seek and crave your touch.
I love it that you love on me without limitation
You have not failed me from the day i was borne
Your incredible golden hues delight my eyes and soul.
You are distant yet so close, fervent in your coming and going
How you keep me on my toes, filling my senses with surprises.
You can be gentle and subtle, soothing my tired mind.
Then, with great timing, you're ablazed, a work of art!
You can be bold, intense and hot, you know the trick, I'm in awe
Reflecting in your presence, you've exposed my vulnerability
Mere human, weak and fragile, i found myself humbled
You give, much more than anybody can ever give back
You show up like a paid actor, eloquent and beautiful
How is it, you've never complained at the ugliness of it all?
You have the power to burn and punish ingrates etal
A ball of mystery, a daunting planet, why do you still visit us?
You are a friend to the friendless, a warm blanket to the homeless
For years, you have watched over me, brightening my days
I have not been as gracious, rather i have been self absorbed
But, now i honor and thank you, for the magnificence of your love
