Sunset

Before the sun sets

I will kiss the beautiful things farewell

Because as seasons change

I know

I may not see them tomorrow

 

I will release the ugly things

I held for too long

And pray to forget

 

Before the sun sets

I will embrace the air I breathe

And hold on to the labyrinth of my mind

For the birds will fly South

And I may never be the same again
