Softly, seek out joy and grace.
Here, in twilight's gentle hour
find sweet moments to embrace.

Love can dwell in an Autumn face
like asters, like late-blooming flowers.
Softly, seek out joy and grace.

Savor, walk a slower pace.
Watch the rainbow. Feel the shower.
Find sweet moments to embrace.

Look inside, create a place
beyond regret, past dark and dour.
Softly, seek out joy and grace.

Don't let gloaming go to waste
nor bright leaves of October's bower.
Find sweet moments to embrace.

In this, the last laps of the race
feel love's touch, its peace and power.
Softly seek out joy and grace.
Find sweet moments to embrace.

This is a villanelle, as was 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.' But I have tried to find a different tone, to the same subject. The line, you will notice is four, rather than five feet. The stresses of the meter are, I think, gentler.
