The Time Of Sunset

It's a perfect thing to see
Like the best time of fall
When the leaves are changing color
And the dew is morning's shawl

It gives rise to the dark
It makes stars come out to play
It's the time to think of dreams
And all we did today

Did we help our fellow man
Could we have done better
Did we make a friend
Or did we lose another

Ask for grace for tomorrow
And a new understanding
In any endeavor that we will
Lest our plans go astray

But the start is like the end
Sunsets are that way
Tomorrow we'll do it again
It's the end of another day
