Fading Light

Rating: 4.8

Fading Light

Brilliant colors wash over the sky
The wonder of it all brings out a sigh

Clouds bathed in the rich tones at dusk
Give way to a crimson, for some it's a must

The elegance of the sun sinking into the sea
Did God make all this especially for me?

The stars emerge through the deepened sky
And one by one they brighten ones eye

Moonbeams dance; sparkling upon the waves
This awesome sight, always brings out the raves

There is a joy in viewing this scene
To clarify the memory of what life means

As steady as the breeze that blows from the sea
I'll always cherish sunsets made special for me

As constant as the pounding of the surf
As sure as the green grass weaves on the turf

With the certainty that the sun will rise
Love will go on if seen with these eyes
