That Sunset Far Away – #WednesdayVerses

We walked, you and I,
The sunset far away,
My laughter, your joy,
So long it had to stay.

On the roof, we stood,
The sunset far away,
My hand in your own,
Teaching me to play.
Wind beneath its wings,
The black kite swayed,
Rose toward the clouds,
The sunset far away.

You taught me to fly,
Never led me astray,
Told me to run toward,
That sunset far away.
With the kite, without,
In greens, whites, grays,
I’ve soared in the sky,
The sunset far away.

But a lot has changed,
For I’m still here today,
And you have risen near
That sunset far away.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
