Have you ever seen the sun setting in to an ocean,

Have you ever really stoped and looked at it ?

The yellow, orange, pink and purple of the sky

Blending in to the glimmering blue of ocean.

Did it touch something in you, something deep?

The cool breeze on your face, in your hair

Did it sooth your wounds and energize your cells?

Did the sound of waves and rustling leafs

Calm your long troubled mind?

Have you ever felt the soft rays

Of setting sun on you face and closed your eyes?

The sun didn’t have to say it but you knew it

You knew in that moment

That it’s going to be okay.

Do you remember?

How can you say then

That you don’t believe in magic.
