Moments pass and I wonder why things happen the way they do
Events I hope to forget because of the hurts and pain.
Looking back daily wishing I could change the past
Oh, how futile my persistent journey of no end.
I wonder if the skies ever hold any answers for me
So I look up to count the stars and see how full the moon is each night.
Morning after morning I awake to see the sunrise
Evening after evening I hurry to sit to watch the sun set.
On that Sunday evening when I sat and watched
Peering through my light pink tinted lenses.
I felt a warmth lightly over my right arm
And I knew it couldn’t have been the sun.
I turned to look to my right
Wondering who my guest might be.
Looking straight into your eyes
Yet speaking not a word.
You said you watched me daily
As I performed my pre-sunset rituals
Crossing my legs in place holding a bottle in my right hand
With my bracelets hanging loosely on my wrist
Still I said nothing hoping you would get the message
The sun now a beautiful semi circle falling behind the field.
Or so to me it seemed for there was nothing else
That caught my attention except your bright brown eyes.
Yesterday you finally found the courage to ask me
Why I always came out to see the sunset.
You seemed puzzled as I saw in your eyes
After I said I woke up to see the sunrise daily.
No one else might do the same on earth
And that was what made me special.
It was what my dad taught me to see
Prior to the time he returned to dust.
He told me of how much grace the sun had
How she shone on both the good and the bad.
He taught me that even as bright as she may be
She had a time when she will let the moon reflect her light.
For she has her own time to rule during the day
But still yet allows the moon to glory at night.
He reminded me that no matter how great I am at something
It’s best to give others a hand for the world to receive my light when I’m gone.
Nothing else in nature’s beauty had any eyes beheld
That held so much beauty and grandeur.
Nothing else made me grateful for my existence
For I’m certain that I am more beautiful than the sun in her highest glory.
