Sunshine comes in many forms.
-  -  -  -  -  -
That which comes up in the morning
and goes down at night.
And little girls who
are Momma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
She rises in the morning
sometimes cloudy,
sometimes bright,
but always Momma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Sometimes she rains tears
torrential they may pour
but comforted by the voice
of the One who loves her so.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Sometimes she shines bright
the warmth of hugs and smiles.
Love overflowing in the heart,
it’s all Momma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Love is forever and always
whether its stormy or bright.
Love covers all situations
For all is Momma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Sunshine’s  Eyes and Smiles
Light up the world around her.
Creating more smiles in their eyes
when first they did find her
-  -  -  -  -  -
When Momma’s day is gloomy
Sunshine arrives with much to say
with happy stories, hugs and smiles
to brighten up the cloudiest day.
-  -  -  -  -  -
When Sunshine goes to bed
it usually can be said
Sunshine’s eyes cease to gleam
when energy’s gone, time to dream.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Eyes close and all is well
in Sunshine Land I do tell.
Momma’s De-light in peaceful sleep
The day is over, it will keep.
-  -  -  -  -  -
She is after all
Momma’s Sunshine.
