“The dawning of a sunset” by Cherise Hider

Cherise Hider - 2011-11-09



The dawning of a sunset

I don’t seek power,
Nor money.
Materialistic objects,
they yield nothing for me

It burns,
And it bleeds.
Only happiness,
found inside your dreams.

It’s the care a mother
Gives to her child.
Or a lover shares
With the other.

which ignites the night sky …
and soon it will give way,
To the dawn of a new day …
