Sunsets of Our Lives

Love and beauty come to us,
A gift from the breaking dawn, 
But with the fading of the sunset,
We find that Love has gone.

The daylight wavers, then declines
Into the somber depths of night
And we wonder where our Love has gone
Gone, and hidden from our sight.

The bright gold Love we cherish
As each new day arrives
Fades to darkness in the night
With the sunsets of our lives.
