rays of daylight or sunlight?

I'm writing a poem and I have this line in it:
"The last rays of sunlight disappears."

Now I'm wondering if perhaps I should change "sunlight" to "daylight"?
What's the difference?

    It's sunlight that has rays -- "the sun's rays." Daylight is the time of day when it's light, rather than dark. You'll want "disappear" to match with "rays."
