Sunshine Of Her Sky...

Sunshine Of Her Sky...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Another rainy day, dark clouds in the sky
Threaten to pull a grieving mother's mood down
Into the pit of darkness, darkness she fights
To stay away from, darkness she is afraid of

In this pit of hell, one swims around in the black ocean
Of  the mind, holding on to anything that gets through
To reach down to them, like a life saver tossed from above
Hold on, hold on until too tired, sinking once again in the dark

Let the sunshine brighten the sky, light up her mind
Casting any hint of a shadow away
Lifting the grieving mother's mood up to the sky
Making her smile a sunshine smile to light her way

Pure white, fluffy clouds float around her bright smile
Birds sing, they fly in elation at such bright, golden light
The grieving mother has become as one
With the big, yellow sunshine in the sky

Rain, rain all you want to, the sun's going to shine
No longer will the grieving mother fall down to the pit of darkness
She has become her own big, wonderful light
Now, she has become ... sunshine of her sky


  1. I like that! This tells me that you are determined to "stay afloat"! I am glad because I need you to be atop of everything! That is what best friends do! I love you Gloria! Love, Ms. Nancy
