Not Just Another Sunset

The sun is hovering,
Lingering,
High in the sky;
Sinking oh so slowly
As time races by.

The harsh rays have softened
And cast a mellow pink glow,
That tickles,
Teases,
The horizon below.

The blue waves are calm,
Serene,
Beneath the radiant orb.
Reflecting the glow like a mirror,
Rays too beautiful to absorb.

I capture the moment,
Before it fades into darkness.
The glow that lights up the heart anew,
And shines into the soul;
The glow I only wish
To pass on to you :)

Wow. I really like the part that goes... 

"I capture the moment,

Before it fades into darkness.

And shines into the soul;
