Have You Ever Heard the Sound of the Setting Sun?

have you ever heard the sound of the setting sun?

it makes the sound of a beating happiness

of laughter beneath wedding tents,

of lights twinkling throughout the night,

and of lipstick smudges on champagne glasses

on the day they swore on sickness & in health”

the sun hummed a perfect melody

have you ever heard the sound of the setting sun?

it makes the sound of a peaceful happiness 

of cuddling up next to campfires,

and of children picking wildflowers for their mothers.

it reminds me of the time i drove to the beach,

just to hear the sound of waves crashing.

have you ever heard the sound of the setting sun?

it makes the sound of blazing happiness

the sound of wildfires within our pounding hearts,

of kissing boys who taste like mint,

of standing on top of the world and shouting secrets,

and of ice cream runs at two in the morning.

“go & live” the sun whispers “before it’s too late.”

have you ever heard the sound of the setting sun?

it makes the sound of happiness

of little reminders to live everywhere we turn 

these are moments that stop our breaths and quicken our hearts

we don’t hear the sound of the setting sun instantly,

instead we heart it later – in the deepest hollows of our hearts.
