Beginnings and Endings

Beginnings and Endings
Sometimes it is difficult to know
A sunrise from a sunset
The coming of the light
From the gathering darkness

There is beauty in both
And what will come
Will come
So best to appreciate the moment

Darkness leads to light
And light to darkness
Beginnings come to an end
Endings are a time to start anew

But if you need to know
Consider which shore you’re on
And the direction you are facing

Then, remind yourself
The next moment
Is always a beginning
