Not Yet

I had a long day
and I carried the world
upon my shoulder,
The journey was
long and lonely,
I want to lie down
and close my eyes ...
But not yet.

The sun is setting gently
and a weary wind sighs
through the evening haze,
I want to lay my burden down
and quietly sneak away
from the din of the day ...
But not yet.

I had my days in the sun
I frolicked and I had fun,
It's time to retreat
to my safe haven
and reminisce about
those willful days,
I am ready to confess
and mend my ways ...
But not just yet!

    This paints a beautiful picture with soft, colorful imagery. You seem to have a very classic style that I find comforting and inspiring. Perhaps this piece portrays mixed feelings. I sense both comfort, relief, and sadness. Thank you so much for sharing.
