The Sun Goes Down

The sun goes down and shadows creep
in silent hours before I sleep.
I pray before I close my eyes
that God will let me see it rise.

The sun goes down and people die
a million deaths as babies cry
their protests against being born,
lost lives replaced anew by dawn.

The sun goes down, I watch it set,
a chance the others didn't get.
Gold ribbons stretch and disappear
the day is done but I'm still here.

The sun goes down, the shadows creep
in silent hours before I sleep.
The stars come out, the moon rides high
as I mourn the man that shared my sky.
