Sunset













Down in memory lane
You were the sunset, glaring;
Fading yet very lovely
A beacon, trying to leave.

Kissing the ocean's surface
Stroking its rough crevices,
Giving enough, just enough
Take toll of tomorrow's sight.

Sonata of the heavens
Flickering much to see not;
Trips and hops of hues - gone rays
Yet you'll visit once again.

Cover the grayish sky
Ember red or brick red.
Fill it with your every soul
Sunset, leave me no more.
