Endings

sunrise 2

Bittersweet endings

In silence, shadows lurking

In slumber-disturbing dreams

Sleepless eyes awake

Metronome’s endless tick

Marking time’s passing

Wondering passage

Through souvenirs and trophies

And scrapbooks of life’s high moments

As endings draw near

I will still shed one more tear

Before I stand up and cheer

A toast to new horizons

Bright glows of the rising sun

When tearing wild winds calm down
