The Setting Sun

You brightened my world
And warmed my soul
You showed me paths
I never knew I could go

I traveled so far
Under your bright gaze
An angel of fire
You set my heart ablaze

I could've stayed there forever
But you are elsewhere bound
My world is dimming
As you fall toward the ground

I could run after you
To keep you longer
Or I could watch you leave
Which would be harder?

You're growing more distant
You're changing your colors
More beautiful than ever
As you move on to others

As your light leaves my life
Your warmth stays with me
I'll always remember you
I know I had to let you free.
