We must remember that although the sun may be setting, it is at this very moment rising for another. Should we feel sad for the loss of our sun or be happy for those about to experience the new dawn.
The sun sets slowly, while I enjoy its magnificence.
The horizon casts shadows across the sky.
The darkness engulfs me, while I reflect on its purpose.
It helps me remember how wonderful the light is.
The sun rises slowly, while I bathe in its brilliance.
At once, I can be both.
