A Kindergarten Song and a Brotherís Love

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
all the little voices sing
You make me happy, when skies are gray
their tiny voices ring
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
and Michael listened close one day
Please don't take my sunshine away
and learned through them a way to pray.

The other night, dear, As I lay sleeping
Michaelís sister was born quite ill
I dreamt I held you in my arms
she lay quiet, alone and still
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
as she heard these words of love spoken
And hung my head and cried
her stirring became a sign sheíd awoken.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
Her brother kept singing
You make me happy, when skies are gray
His sister to make well
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
He battled the furious fight
Please don't take my sunshine away
and brought her back overnight.

I'll always love you and make you happy
So there is a Being who loves
If you will only love me too
Looking over from above
But if you leave me to love another
and Iíll never leave the Lord or this song
You'll regret it all some day
for with my sunshine I still belong.

I love the way you used the words of the song, very effective. A heart-wrenching poem.

Original, I love the way you put this together. Very touching, I read a story about this once. What a creative piece!

Touching. I have read the story as well. This describes it better, I think

Hey Sunshine, hopefully you'll see this this comment when you are back online.

this is one of your best so far. You should post it in CA. I loved it.

Ahhh Karilea....I love the way you did this... thank you for sharing it with us...you've had me in tears.

Such a special little boy... how beautiful.

Maree beautiful lady
