Coping, Coping

Oh, little ray of sunshine, little ray of hope
shine down upon me now, allow me now to cope.
Oh little ray, little ray, would warmth and blessings fall
when I think of the darkness, in my soul and all.

I was once a ray of sunshine, I made each day complete
I kept giving and giving more, making each day replete
until the day it ended, and my sunshine was no more
oh, little ray of sunshine, come knocking at my door.

I donít think I can tell you how the feelings of love are gone,
all I know is my ray of sunshine has been out far, far too long;
the darkness envelopes me, the fear, the bleak, the chill ~
will there ever be sun again? I donít think so, but still,

there is the very slightest of glimmering hope I can feel
somewhere hiding within the very depth of me, itís real.
Oh little ray of sunshine, littlest ray of shining hope
shine upon this poor soul now, allow it ever to cope.

9 September, 1999

You are so special Sunshine. I printed this piece as I found myself wiping a tear. Beautifully done! I really needed this today.
I hope it gave you a BIG lift to share it.

Thank you all! Don't worry...sometimes we post fiction, you know! My "ray" is most always out and about...

so grow, everyone!
