Sunset

Oh sunset, your aura still lingers,
A charming shade u the sky,
A perfect watercolor painting,
The first sign of day waving goodbye.

Oh sunset, you’re so beautiful, 
Your colors paint the air, 
Flashes of the brightest hues,
You leave traces everywhere.

Oh sunset, how you grin,
With such a cheerful light,
Your lovely warmth is always, 
An unexpected delight.

Oh sunset how you have lit my path,
Tolerated my blurry tears,
You’re a familiar place, where I’ve loved and lost,
But still you remain, despite the cruel years.

Oh sunset, now you’re dancing,
Alive, and carelessly free, 
Sunset im feeling jealous,
Oh I wish that could be me.

Oh sunset, how fleeting, mysterious,
You never do stay for long,
Just enough moments to make me realize,
What in my life is so very wrong.

Oh sunset I despise your tricks,
The way you flirt with the sky,
I am not as easily deceived,
I see right through your lie.

Oh sunset i see youre wilting,
but please don’t go just yet, 
I need your flimsy arms to hold me,
and im scared i will forget.

Oh sunset, you fade, silent as always,
A trickle of fear touches my heart,
A sliver of doubt is all that I need,
To tear this beauty apart.

Oh sunset, you smile, wink, just play,
Deciding it’s time to make haste,
So gone is the promise of comfort and love,
All hopes, all dreams; a silly waste.

The treetops aloft are golden,
but shadows are closing in,
Oh sunset i would love you more,
If you werent so weak, such a coward, a fool,
To let the darkness win.
