Topic: Dondra's Answer To The "Sunshine Song"

She just handed me this and I read it through a little rain falling on my face, and thought y'all might want to see it?

Here it is, it has no title as of yet. She very RARELY writes, so this is special. We hope y'all like it.

=====================================

"The sunshine that you gave to me

Warmed my heart and soul

It chased away the shadows and then my life felt whole


Sunshine painted all the corners of my life

Surrounding me with comfort and taking away the strife

Sunshine, invisible, surrounding me, so warm

Swaddles me, comforts me and so I fear no harm


Reminding me of you and your selfless devotion

I'm fortunate to know a love that so transcends emotion

Your gift flowed gently in the room,  grew into my heart

And took away the gloom.


I never knew you had the Sunshine

That it was saved for me

God leant to you the sunshine

And was pleased that you chose me.

Special gifts like Sunshine are so, so very rare

God trusted you with Sunshine

Because He knows how much you care"

Aweeeeeeeee!

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

Re: Dondra's Answer To The "Sunshine Song"

Dino,

I will try, okay, but I'm better at writing them than I am at singing them. I'm sure you understand, dear friend.

Beautiful...............lovely Dondra.

Re: Dondra's Answer To The "Sunshine Song"

Dondra and Bill you radiate beautiful warm loving sunshine.
Dondra I can feel her warmth as the words jump of my computer screen and down into my soul.
Yesterday my Maree and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary and last night even though it was dark I felt the sunshine of Bill's original words.
Now we have Dondra,s moving words as well.
Special gifts like sunshine are so, so very rare.
Thank you dear friends.
