We count ourselves lucky
when a sunset leaves us breathless,
as if it was unique,
something that happens once in a lifetime.
It's true the sunset of that moment
will never come again,
but somewhere,
every minute,
one day goes to bed and another rises.
On frozen mountains
and sandy beaches,
the world keeps turning
without anyone noticing,
There's a sunset happening right now.
Open your eyes,
revel in the new day.
