Watching an Illusion

walking in the fields of evening
I saw the sun sitting on a tree
I don’t want you to go away
I said
come and spend the night with me
I won’t tell it to the moon
I promise
the stars will keep the secret safe
and I’ll open up to you
to grow
to shine
to feel complete…
but the sun kept fading
I couldn’t stop its beams from falling on the ground
and still
the Illusion I saw
made me feel I could
