As The Sun Sets

And as the sun sets,
my mind wanders
over the day past.

Was I good enough,
kind enough,
loving and forgiving?

What will the morrow bring?
Continued sadness, or joy,
hope or despair?
The answer, residing ever,
and always, in me.

For, it is in faith I live,
and in faith, hope,
and in hope, peace.

Yes, there may be sorrow,
even anger and regret,
but they live not long
where peace resides.

For, if I have done my best,
at every turn,
learning as I go,
regret cannot live long,
anger cannot remain,
and sorrow dissipates
like snow in the melting sun.

The key is to learn,
at every turn,
from every misstep,
so as to grow,
in an ever continual pursuit
of light, love and happiness.

So, I let my mind wander,
and revisit my day,
in order to get stronger,
better, kinder,
and I do this all,
as the sun sets.
