You gave me the sunset,
neatly wrapped in a flaming cloth
with golden ribbons lacing its warmth.
I can rest tonight,
knowing tomorrow will rise with me.
I hear your call through foggy windows and
know you hold my hand to gather strength,
before your cinnamon brown wings sail on to
find another song, or two, or three,
that you’ll nestle and cherish until our next meet.
The air I breathe will wrap
my aching body in fresh life,
full of hope that I’ll carry with me.
As the day’s troubles gather,
you never leave my side.
