    I look westward
    Judging the distance
    How far away is the setting sun
    Can I be there quickly
    Can I reach the burning edge
    I need to arrive before it leaves
    Before it shrinks behind the mountains

    The disappearing ball of light
    Says goodbye to me
    Wait
    I am coming
    I can catch you setting sun
    I'll be there
    You won't have to leave
    Don't go

    The setting sun
    Hears only the ocean winds calling
    Winds from the west
    That become the winds from the east
    Back to me
    Where I watch
    Yet another day
    The setting sun

    the rising sun

    my comfort
    is in knowing
    that each time
    I look eastward
    every time
    my eyes are
    blessed to witness
    the birth of
    a new day

    there is hope
    there is opportunity
    for dreams
    incubated through the
    night
    to come

    to light


    thank you BE...

    My, my, my...

    This is so potent, I feel the day will not bow to the night properly if I do not have an opportunity to witness the Sunset on 4/26. Magnificent scribe!
