A Magical World

A Magical World

As we strolled down that winding path
Hand in Hand
And the sun sinks slowly in the west
The world becomes a wonderland

Magic is performed
Right before our eyes
As twilight begins
Twinkling stars fill the skies

Those bright colors
Spattered in a brilliant array
We can drink in the splendor
Of the ending of the day.

The beauty is breathtaking
Such a peaceful sight
We’re speechless as we
Gaze at the beginning of the night

Quietly as I awaken
From this beautiful dream
And of the many thoughts
As they stream

Through my mind
And as I lay there, now wide awake
Is there a lesson here?
A comparison we could make

As we live and love
And move on through life
Through trials and tribulations
Troubles and strife

Would that we could
Deep in our mind see
Start of night the ending of the day
Making life easier for you and me.
