I watch the sun set

In a brilliant blaze

Under a sky of stars

I get lost in their haze

Twilight engulfs

My most secret thoughts

As golden rays bury

My mind, distraught

I am captivated

By glorious, rays of light

That take me from morn

Into the night

While I sit here and wonder

What is to be?

When my eyes finally close

What is it I’ll see?

Will my time on this Earth

Be nearer the end?

Or will I still see the light

As thoughts transcend

Higher, like the swing

Which knows no bounds

I fly, for I am no longer

Planted, on the ground
