Sunset

As a sunset settles softly,
On what has been my place,
And I let the last golden rays,
Just drift across my face.
~
I sit and sadly wonder,
A waiting for the night,
The twists and turns of life,
Of the things we just cant fight.
~
The path were left to wander,
From beginning to the end,
How much we can control,
What we can and cant defend.
~
We want from life so much,
The things we wish and dream,
Were not always in control,
No matter what it seems.
~
The good things in life,
That are dealt to you by fate,
Often have a price,
Or require that you must wait.
~
But patience is a virtue,
Brought about by time,
To earn a special gift,
To taste what is divine.
~
So in my dreams we will soar,
Across the nighttime sky,
Our hearts will feel no pain,
And well never have to cry.
~
Ill sit awaiting sunrise,
For the dawning of the day,
When we can be together,
And chase the night away.

The setting of the sun,
a cause for reflection.
You've done it well.
I like this very much.
