I want to escape

Into the fading sun

And let the stars be born as I watch.

I want to forget,

Just for a moment,

The burdens I carry on my shoulders.

I want to sleep

A dream-filled rest

Without the nightmares that cripple me.

Just for one lovely sunset

I want to not have to face

The fact

That you are gone.

I want to escape

Into the fading sun

And watch the stars be born as I watch.

I want to feel your presence

In the evening air

And know that,

No matter where I go,

Your spirit will be there.
