It is really an eye opening experience. Just a year ago, I could walk without a cane. I could even run a little. But today I can't hardly walk. It is like I am hearing a song we used to sing. The Evening Sun is going down. Truly it comes to us all.

The Evening Sun Today

I was sitting outside in the evening sun
Thinking about times when I could run
I was very fast and all my buddies too
But I was the fastest everybody knew.

I won most of the races we had back then
All of us participated running in the wind
Even at the school ground and in the park
We ran ran foot races on up til it was dark

I was very popular because the kids envied me
I strove for perfection and I gained popularity
I only wanted to be well liked as I led my gang
We tried to do our very best even when we sang

I will never forget how we played as friends
Years have taken its told as we near our end
I am about the only one left to tell this old story
The sun is almost down but I give God the glory

I'll never see my old gang on this earth again I know
A few more days perhaps and surely I will have to go.
My life has been really blessed by my Good LORD
Leaving my family I guess is what makes it so hard


Bright And Warm, Shiny, Sky So Blue
