Being an optimist to the core, I prefer sunrises. They bring new hope & vigor which is enough to shadow any doubts or sadness that lies in my mind. Seeing the sun rise carries me through the day. Paying my respects to him is also a way of thanking him and if not for him, i did be lost in the night that seemed darker than the one before!
Having said all that, sunsets have a special appeal. Perhaps they are symbolic of the phrase “nothing lasts forever” and epitomize the glorious end to a glorious story.
And yet, all hope never dies since there will always be a sunrise after a sunset!
