when the sun sets

you remind me of those sunsets i would gaze into
each day
while growing up 
the clouds at noon day 
as a child at play 
i think i always saw you there
in the setting sun 
when day met night
you would always return

i never understood what kept me there
i just knew i could not look away
in the still of my body
either grounded or in motion
my eyes would not leave
my head would not tilt
until we were both ready
until the following day

when the sun sets on its journey
you would always return
to play
the light
the sound
from mid day
to the ground 
you always seemed familiar
i could not stay away
