Poetry: Sunset

Before the sun sets
On this tired old trunk
I hope to of lived
A life full of Sunshine
Friends, family
Laughter, joy
Hope discovered
Mysteries solved
How wonderful that time will be
When it is Time I think on
But only if Living was
What was done
The most beautiful Sunset viewed
Is one by eyes that have Cried
Fulfillments, contracts concluded
A slow fade to black…
