When The Sun Shines


When the sun shines
it beautifies,
refreshing our eyes.

Like a gentle tide,
memories flow
of precious days gone by,
the growing years,
loved ones, special places,
precious moments,
different faces.

Joyful sounds abound as
children play, their day
full of new discoveries.

Hearts are cheered
and smiles appear
as grey gives way
to azure skies above
and all around us

Love blossoms,
two hearts share;
fragrant scents
fill the air.

Radiant rays
beam through lofty

Warm crimson sunsets
close glorious days;
twilight haze
paves the way
for starlit skies.

Thank you
dear Lord
for the beautiful
gift of gold!
