Coucher du Soleil

As I sat, absorbing yet another loss this morning, the following words came to mind. 

Coucher du Soleil

The sunset moment comes to us all

None are exempt from that setting

When mortal day is done

And we embrace peace . . . forgetting

Sorrow, pain, grief, despair

These all slip away

As we climb a golden stair

Toward a brighter day

We leave the mortal shell of life behind

Retaining memory of our time

Reuniting with loved ones lost

As we make that final climb.

Though others grieve as we depart

A brighter day will dawn

Peace will settle the anguished heart

Lending strength to carry on.
