Death of a Perfect Day


She smiles at me through crimson skies
with passion burning in her weary eyes.

This day has a perfect aura
A perfect sun, today to savour.

Each dying second gives a moment pause
Its almost time, she will not last.

This day will make a sure descend
and be replaced by a mistress's shadow soon.

Say your good-byes and wave to her now
A sudden end, no more time will allow.

The death of the day breathes life for another
Tommorow be blessed to see one other.

Another just as kind as she
still I fear it will not be
as the perfect one I knew

The sun may yet rise again
- Its the death of a perfect day.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
