optimistic one

This is one of my more optimistic ones.

I'm standing on the beach
Watching the sun go down,
The waves lap at me feet
The wind blows through my hair
My dress flaps around my knees.
All I can see is the
Setting sun.
It turns the world red,
The sea is red, gold and
All the shades in between
The colours spread in a
Collage of beauty
And then,
The darkness falls
The beauty disappears
In a moment
To be replaced by nothingness.
I turn away
But I know,
Tomorrow there will be
Another sunrise
Another beginning..
