I am Sitting in the Late Afternoon Sunshine...

I am sitting in the late afternoon sunshine,
An old man with tired bones and a heart empty of desires.
Nearby, a bird is singing in the trees,
And a puff of wind is soft against my cheek.
Soon the sun will be setting, and I wonder
If tonight I shall see the stars.
