I was the Sunrise
On a day, an ordinary day,
I broke free of the dark,
Sprang into the world, shining bright.
Birth was a beginning to me,
A place where I began to grow,
Set out to climb to great heights.
At my zenith I was me,
All the power of burning light,
Something guiding my feet into sight.
Then, no-one knew me at all,
For I was new and unnamed,
A marvel coming into the world to delight.
And even the birds sang shrilly,
To court me in my ascension,
For I was the sunrise, the dawning of light.
I Am the Present
Here in my zenith of power,
I am not without humility.
Because without you, I am nothing.
Imagine me rising high above,
Where no-one, not a soul moved.
So who would have noticed me ?
You could say I had not been,
For who would record the event,
Were it not being seen by you ?
And because of this one truth,
The present moment becomes a law,
For eternity to follow into life.
How grand do I feel here,
Shining the emancipated revelation,
Of what being present draws near ?
I will be the Sunset
Towards the evening I wane,
Losing ground raining down the same.
Disappearing from horizon, knowing a name.
Your eyes and your skin cool,
Where my march leaves shadows to pool.
Simply that I follow a cosmic rule.
The end of an incredible day,
Where life has taught me to play.
I drop behind the earth, moving away.
For you I am the sunset,
To others the present moment.
Still others I will be the sunrise.
Don't grieve for my return,
Accept the day I had arrived.
Enjoy me, for I will be the sunset.
A trilogy of me.
