Sunset Melody
Sunset Melody

I miss those days, now long gone by,
when sunset was a lullaby;
a song rejoicing what had past
when eventide had come at last.

I listen to the siren’s scream,
the shattering of someone’s dream,
the music blaring from the cars
drown out the silence of the stars.

The T.V. blares across the room;
the landing planes – their sonic boom
no longer even make me blink.
I’m deaf from all the noise I think.

I lie in bed and as I drift,
the memories that still uplift
and bring me peace enough to sleep
into my waking dreams still creep.

The wind sighs softly in the tree,
the crickets chirp in harmony
a part of nature's symphony.
completes the sunset melody.

I miss those days, now long gone by,
when sunset was a lullaby;
As I drift off I still can hear
a sunset melody so clear.
