Each day, no matter how glorious,
     grueling, or filled with pain
     does, in deed, extinguish its light,
     close its petals, and put all
     who forage by day to sleep.

Nocturnal creatures awake
     to begin their day,
     but safe dreams unfurl
     in minds of all diurnal.
     No creature ever perished,
     devoured by monsters
     come in visions. Instead,
     what's vivid teaches us
     beware, beware.

One last look before we
     close our eyes
     at what we've hoped
     or striven to realize.
     Is it right, or is it wrong?
     Does it fill the bill?
     Or, will frustrations haunt us
     throughout the night?

This day is done. There's
     no more time.
     Struggle, suffer,
     or giddy slide,
     what's accomplished
     is accomplished.
     What's lost, we fear,
     is horribly lost.
     The day can never
     be redone.
     We've only our tomorrows
     to build upon
     or attempt repair

When day begins anew,
     breathe fresh the golden air.
     But give thought or two
     to how it felt at end last day.
     Then make this coming one
     as worthy of remembering,
     or even all the more.
