Beautiful Sunset

Beautiful Sunset

A Poem by TJ

Bittersweet farewells. Find the joy in every goodbye.


Beautiful Sunset




A beautiful sunset

What a beautiful sunset


Ignore all your sorrows

hold back your tears

your soul may despair

but it's a beautiful sunset


do not fear the ends

the pain of farewell

try to take in

this beautiful sunset


our life is like earth

going through its seasons

moving on its own terms

to its beautiful sunset


although it may seem so

it never happens too soon

things always will end

at their beautiful sunset


what a glorious day

so hard to let go

but just try to enjoy

this beautiful sunset

I did prefer your first poem, but this is not bad.
Repetition of a phrase adds strength to a poem and this is no exception.
Some small spelling errors - last stanza - glorious for example.

Again, flows fairly well. With a little more time the kinks can be ironed out.

This poem was actually better than your first one, in my opinion. I could imagine the sunrise in my mind as I read this. The description and beauty of the words in each stanza was very pure and soft. I loved how you ended with the wore sunrise; it was a unique idea.

Again, sorry if this isn't a good review... I'm not good at reviewing...

A very good poem. I could see the beauty of a sunset with your description and story in your words. The sunset is the best time of a day. Allowing night to take over and change the feel of the moment. A excellent poem.
