Last Sunset

We’re driving to visit you 
And you probably won’t even see us
Or remember that you’ve seen us. We’re driving to visit you
And as we go I see the sun
Caught in the upper branches of a tree
Took me a minute to realize that it was a streetlight,
mimicking the bright orange sunset in the background.
I’m nervous and anxious
but I tell myself it’s because I’m having car problems
And I’m not sure if I’ll get home ok,
the struggling engine made my heart skip.
