I am the Sun

I am the sun; let me rise
I bring sweet beginnings
To golden words recited
By rough voices
Over green, grassy hills
In a silent, abandoned church
Red-tipped cigarettes
A hand-written letter
"Nothing gold can stay"

I am the sun; let me shine
On a raging, red, crackling fire
Screams soaring through the sky
Shattered glass crunching under footsteps
A long fall from a former safe haven
Heroes brought in the spotlight

I am the sun; let me set
Though none can see me
Through closed eyes
Or blinding lights
And shrieking sirens
I fall below the horizon
The sky growing
Darker
Darker
I am the sun; let me rise
