One more day is again a past

One more day is again a past:
The sun by setting, begetting the dusk -
Says one more day is again a past.
Do not know exactly –
Who has gained or who lost,
But for sure – you‘ve advanced –
A day more towards the end.

Before the sun is set
It emanates a light - golden red.
With the last light as twilight –
Everything was looking so bright.

It compels me to think myself
That before my end in this earth–
Will I also be looking so bright –
As the twilight shows the end.

The sun by setting, begetting the dusk -
Says one more day is again a past.

    As the sun sets it lights the world before lying upon the horizon in it's past.
    And the following sunrise says arise it was not your last. Hoping my end
    is as bright as the sunrise as I look one last time upon my final horizon.
    This poem has great meaning to me, thank you Amitava. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
