Sunrise – Sunset

The sun rose on my life

So many years ago

When it comes to the time

That I draw my last breath

I’ll reflect upon my life

Look back without regret

On a life fulfilled 

Of a life of happiness

I’m grateful for the sunrise

At the start of every day

For the excitement

Of not knowing

What may well come my way

I’m grateful for the sunset

As the day becomes less bright

Heralding the beauty –

Of the starlit night
