A very good friend of mine was terminally ill. Each evening her husband would put her in the
golf cart cover her legs with a blanket and away they would drive a short distant to the beach to watch the sunset. Every night, this was the routine until a week before she passed away.

When The Sun Sets Over The Ocean

When the sun sets over the ocean
And the moon begins to rest 
She sits at the ocean’s beach
As its red cloak disappears in the west.

Each evening she yearns for its beauty
The feeling cannot be surpassed
She wishes its elegance could prevail
But like a ship it lowers its mast.

Soon she’ll be as one with the sunset
The sickness has taken its toll
Thoughts of resting in its magnificence
Lulls her heart and soul

In memory of my friend, Debbie
