The setting sun brings darkness on its tail.
It closes the bright day of dreams and wishes.
It brings to an end the warmth of its rays.
The moon waits in the wings for its turn.
Its romp in the sky is accompanied by stars.
Twinkling lights to fill the darkening sky.
The sky is torn between the two heavenly delights.
It lowers its head in acceptance of the daily switch.
Even it cannot fight the dueling forces of nature.
Bring me the blues and pinks,
Highlighted in rays of yellow;
Surrounded by reams of color,
Rainbows cascading my way.
A pretty picture to soothe my mind.
Bright colors to make feel happy.
A sprinkle of fireworks.
A bright ray of the sun.
A disco ball of mirrors.
A rainbow of colors.
Takes so little.
So little to make my day.
RISE FOR ME
Will the sun rise today?
Colors of yellow and red.
Glowing inside to its own beat.
Shimmering with heat.
Ready to begin a new day.
Will you rise today?
Bringing light to the dismal world.
Breaking into the darkness.
Shattering the bleakness.
With your bright rays.
Will you rise today for me?
For I need you.
I need your light.
Your heavenly body.
Please rise for me today.
