Dusk


As I see now in this world,
All good things fade away
Now the sky was splashed in shades
Now its turned grey again

I know the light will shy away,
And dark night will take its course
But the stars will shine and the clouds will glow
Oh moon! You’re already smiling away.

Nothing ceases nothing begins,
As one gradually gives way to another
It’s here to last, it’ll come again tomorrow,
Yet it can never again be today.

A Tribute to the Setting Sun


You shine and smile on all alike,
Everyday as you rise anew,
And when it is time, graciously withdraw,
Leaving behind your dreamy hue.

You stop not for your audience,
But perform and pass us by,
You ask not for our applause
Nor seek our enthralled cry.

Don’t you wonder that you burn out,
Or waste your colours here
There must be deservers somewhere else,
To whom your beauty will be more dear.

Yet you shine and paint our sky,
Giving all nothing you ask
Seem to have within you all you need,
O Sun, Yours is the noblest task.
