The sun will shine again. I promise.
I know.
It's just turned down a little
to give you a moment
to let you rest and remember
all the wonderful times
all the many, many wonderful days
where it shone so bright.
And warmed you thoroughly.

For my wonderful friend +LaDonna Pride
May today be better than yesterday. And may tomorrow be better still.
