The brilliance of tonight’s sunset
Was not what I had hoped it would be
And yet the transition took place, all the same
Without the brilliance of which I had hoped
Another day faded into the darkness of night
Then I was reminded of a simple fact
This is a one time only experience
Never (EVER!) again will it look exactly like this
Brilliance of another sort entirely
And I am here to witness it.
I am grateful!
