Sunshine by Gary R. Ferris
Oh the sunshine that filled my day,

All my worries would fade away.

Bringing me joy, laughter, and peace,

Ironing out problems, even the crease.


Up every morning and smiling so bright,

A welcome sight from a hard long night.

Warming my heart with your love and care,

Preparing my day from all that dare.


The comfort of friendship fills my soul,

The joy you bring, you’ll never know.

Your glow and brightness fill my heart,

Oh sunshine don’t ever part.


What are these clouds that begin to appear,

Is it a sign a storm is near?

I begin to seek shelter, but none is found,

Alone and scared, I stand on the ground.


The cold winds of bitterness begin to blow,

And unforgiving rain starts to flow.

Flashes of anger begin to strike,

Running from trouble, I begin my hike.


The resenting pellets hurt me so much,

And beat on my heart, which is sore to the touch.

Trapped in the open, I long to hide,

Only to save my stubborn pride.


Where will I go and what will I do?

This storm is mighty and powerful too.

Where is the sunshine I used to know?

Why did you leave and where did you go?
