Poetry is Beauty

I had walked along the edge of the sea once
right before the sun laid down to sleep.
Closing my eyes, I placed my trust
within what lied beneath my feet.
One foot stepping in warm sand while the other
foot slightly numb from the coldness of the water.
At that moment a breeze passed by awakening my eyes, I realized,
that I was feeling the sensation of warmth and coldness 
at one time.
As the sun laid to rest, the moon and all those tiny stars appeared.
I thought of a time lying beside a love 
and hurting inside while loving him.
As a tear awoke me from that thought
I realized that I had felt eternal happiness and sadness 
at one time.
