The sky gathers her colors
To prepare for her death.
Not wanting to be forgotten,
She is going to give it her best.
As the colors begin to play
Against a heavenly canvas,
They create such brilliant hues-
Without a doubt their grandest.
The sky, she signals to the sun
To give a final glow.
And the angels themselves come out to watch
The sky in her death throes.
A thousand shades of madness-
She's pulling out all the stops now.
They dance and shine at her command
To make way for her final bow.
The colors soften to orange
As she begins to die.
And a breath-taking masterpiece
Takes over the evening sky.
Now the sun is falling downward,
And the sky is following fast.
But although saddened by her demise,
She's proud she gave it her best.
