Echoes in the Fading Dusk

-

The shimmering light

Is beginning to fade

Once again

I turn to face you

Still at a loss

For words to say

With a gentle sigh

Amidst the warm glow

Of the vanishing dusk

We continue to look on

As the passing of time

Starts to slow

I can no longer see

That bright smile of yours

From so long ago

Even as life goes on

Little by little

Pieces of myself are lost

Turning around to the past

Visions have become hazy

But don't despair anymore

Reach out and embrace

The lost ray of light

That smile from before

-

If I could find the right words

Would you believe me?

These feelings are real

You just have to open your eyes to see
