Sunset's Edge

At every lovely sunset's edge
When silence fills the air
I simply close my eyes once more
To see you standing there
The way you looked so long ago
When you were here with me
In day's fading shadow light
It's only you I see
So let the daylight fade to dusk
Let day succumb to night
If only for this one brief moment
I drown in your sweet light
The sun will fade, Today will end
Tomorrow will come fast
But let me live just one more night
Buried in our past
I will face the brand new day
I'll let you go tomorrow
But tonight, as golden sunset nears
Be with me in my sorrow


------------------
"When you come to the edge of the light which is all you know. And are about to step off into the darkness that is unknown...Faith is knowing one of two things will happen...there will be something to stand on...or you will learn how to fly." -Unknown

One of the best things about a sunset is that you can turn right around and see a brand new sunrise......

As sleepless nights prevail
you tell so well my tale
as the dawn comes to greet me
reflection of love is what I see
