About the Poem

I wrote this in school, in the morning, but I was thinking about sunsets at the time and how much a sunset is like receiving love from the one you love. I thought about how, if you are watching that sunset alone, it can hurt and how many memories it brings back. As I sat with my open notebook in front of me thinking of sunsets, words just flowed into my mind and as they did I wrote them down.

Sunset Lover

Your love is like a sunset,
wild, bright and true.
The colours blend together,
forming a magical hue.
The day's warm caress
is slipping through the air,
just as though your fingers
would be slipping through my hair.

I sit and watch the sunset,
knowing it soon will end,
thinking of you and
waiting 'til we will be together again.
Slowly now it's going,
coming to a end.
Darkness may be closing in,
but the fun has just begun.

For now I can go home,
go to my darkened room,
lie on the bed and
close my eyes,
fall asleep and dream of you.
