The Distant Sun

red sun setting

The distant sun
Marks the end
Of another day
Such a fire in the sky
Such a quiet end to this day
The quiet end of day
Makes me wonder
Beneath the open sky
Upon an open field
I wonder where I’ll be
When I next see that distant light
What will have happen
While the sun travels across the sky
Who will I be when the sun sets once more
A single day change a life
A single moment to change an age
So I wonder once again
What will happen when I next see that distant sun


Red Fire

red/orange sunset

The sun sets
The sky burns
War machines rumble
And men march
The days of peace end
And war begins
This night

Some fight for blood
Some battle for honor
Others seek adventure

The day is ending
And battle is beginning
War has come
Some battle to defend
Some battle to conquer
Who is to tell
Only history will tell
