When the sun begins to set
We all go home and place a bet
How long will the sun last today?
Will he ever care to stay?
The sun shows his bright colors
But darkness comes and smothers
He fights back
But darkness gives him a whack
His blood is like a colorful quilt in the sky
We watch and say goodbye
The sun sinks down to the ground
Darkness goes and keeps him bound
Each night, they have a fight
Each day, the sun shows his light
But when he’s forced away
Darkness then comes to stay
We may always want light
But we can’t always win a fight.
