Fleeting

There is a brilliant sun setting on the horizon. I wipe tears from my eyes, and watch in a strange sense of awe. The sun kisses everything with it’s radiating beams and then disappears from view. It reminds me that, like many things in life, these serenely beautiful moments are often fleeting. Words are left unsaid, moments forgotten, lives lost. But, in those quiet moments, when I feel the sun's warmth on my face, I know you're sending me a smile and lighting up my life, once again.

After the sun sets, it's time for the other side of the world to experience the light and warmth. Sunsets can be pretty, and you have described them well here.
