Sunset of Today


He's standing on the shore
Waves lapping at his feet
She's holding his hand
with a gentle squeeze

She's remembering the past
He's thinking of the future
eyes staring, people walking
time slowly drifting, passing

He's asking for forever
She's talking of yesterday
With the waves on their feet
they noticed the sunset of today


Today he said he will change
Today she said will tell him
they won't count tomorrow and yesterday
they will enjoy the sunset of today
