About the Poem

This poem was written while I was living on the island of Maui, during which time I was going threw a separation with my wife and later a divorce. For anyone whom has gone through a "deep blue" feeling, poetry can help with the healing of one's heart.

sad and sweet

The Maui Sunset

Each day I took the time
to watch a Maui sunset,
For the Maui sun told me:
Your today is put to rest,
there's another tomorrow to test.

As it soothed my soul with its
golden ray of shine,
it told me my feelings of love
I'll have to go and find,
letting go of love that was never real,
was part of my past to forever heal.

When I looked across the endless
Pacific Ocean,
waiting for a Maui sunset to motion;
With only a state of mind with
a single emotion;
My ill fated heart found its lotion.

Although my dream for you
never came true,
watching a Maui sunset
lifted my feelings of being blue.
