In the Twilight

Title

In the Twilight

Description

When the twilight shadows deepen,

Bringing evening to its close,

Calm and peaceful are the moments,

Verging on to night's repose.

When the twilight shadows bring us

Gentle memories of the past,

Then the mist of time is lifted,

With no shadow o'er it cast.

Yet in hearts where dwells the twilight,

Where contentment reigns supreme,

Burst forth rays of glorious sunshine,

Spreading forth a radiant gleam.

Every ray will tinge the gloaming,

And dispel each thought of care,

Every joy will seem the brighter,

And each sorrow less to bear.

May our twilight be thus happy,

As we near life's closing day,

Passing on beyond the shadows,

To the land so far away.
