Not A Sunrise

I can’t see a sunrise

Without seeing the sunset

My eyes can’t see the birth

Without my mind seeing the death

By mid morning it comes

Slowly rising to wake

And by noon it has summoned

The peak of our strength

By afternoon it curves

Downward to rest

A grand culmination

Of fast fleeting breaths

When that flame glow peeks

Just once before the end

And fades out to quench

The fire of life we tend

And in our final moment

As we bleed into night

Our essence of being

Coalesces with the light
