Twilight Blue Prayer - Poem by Barry Middleton

In every hue of sunset,
the only one I know

is tinged with twilight blue
of time in afterglow.

All memories are blue,
all dawns are tinted pink.

But as the day is ending,
I need no doublethink.

The victories have faded
to mark the close of day.

And time reveals a shade
of bittersweet dismay.

And so I must resign
the struggle and the strain,

and send a gentle prayer,
to free me from this pain.
