Twilight

'Twixt a smile and a tear,
'Twixt a song and a sigh,
'Twixt the day and the dark,
When the night draweth nigh.
Ah, sunshine may fade
From the heavens above,
No twilight have we
To the day of our love.

by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Philosophy of life and death explained in a simple and superb manner. Thanks for sharing it here.
When the night draweth nigh Ah sunshine may fade From the heavens above No twilight have we To the day of Love- - - - On the Day of Love- -there is no twilight, no smile, no tear.Smile and tear vanish and merge into one.It is the final day on earth.
