Shades of pink and cobalt blue
showed at sunset tonight;
Above the blue was soft melon -
another awesome delight.
Some sunsets bleed with vibrant colour
but these were soft and subdued;
Angels kissing us all goodnight -
bidding today adieu.
Two little verses from a hospital bed -
what more was there to say?
Shades of pink from God’s own brush -
blessing me in His own special way.
