“Its true you know
You are the sunshine in my day.”
I say this as we recline in bed.
It’s been a long day, family demands
Out in the midday sun.
You look across and say that is your opinion too
That I have added so much to your days
For now we have something real
The days of pretend are over
We trust and we love.
A simple formula when you equate it
With the power of the warmth of the sun.
I shut my eyes and remember a time
When the sun didn’t shine
When my days were dark and gloomy.
I look into your eyes
Aware how lucky I am.
