Another day the sun silhouettes you

Is another day the rest of us smile

While it’s not always easy – life

You make it easier on us with your light


The light of your kindness

Your affection

Your depth

And your poise


Those of us who know you

Are grateful and blessed

Every day of the year we remember

Everything you have given to us


So that even on overcast days

We can still look up in the sky

Past the torrent streaming down

Through the grey of the clouds

And still see a sun

Still feel your fire

Warming our hearts

With the torch of your light.
