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.

poetry is helping the reader find an emotion and see a new light. It takes you to a place that you (the reader) might not be willing to go to with any other format. A good poem makes you think and or feel a great poem does both.
I think you have done a great job here.

Beautiful. The image is vivid and amazing. It flows very well and there are not many errors. With those few fixed, it would be even more fantasitc. Great job.
