Ray of Sunshine

I see these cumulus clouds before me They start to open, and what did I see Ray of sunshine bursting through the middle A sight to behold I can’t belittle It’s like the sparkle of a diamond A calming, peaceful ray, a silent sound Just as soon as I saw this gorgeous sight It vanished back to the clouds of the night
