Sweet Sunshine

For my children.

There’s sunshine in your eyes
That lights up my whole world,
Without you I’d be in the dark –
Without you I would come apart.

The sunshine in your smiles
Lifts my heart when I am down.
Though I may groan about the noise,
I can’t imagine another life choice.

You’ve given me a glimpse of what awaits
When I get to Heaven’s gates;
And I know that when I die,
I’ll still see your sweet, sweet smiles.
