OPTIMISTIC PERSPECTIVE

I only tell of sunny hours…
With my radiant optimistic perspective
Instructing humankind to cheer up
As our Creator wakes every one 
To enjoy life to the fullest.

Since I only tell of sunny hours…
I expose to people goodness of light
For them to spend each day* with wisdom
Taking stock of their priorities,
Neglecting not gracious relationships.

As I only tell of sunny hours…
I melt skepticism’s obscurity
Showing hope’s brightness
Invigorating earth with zest
Greeting: “Pleasant day!”

Yes, I only tell of sunny hours…
After sweet rest in the night.
Being a prudent time-device, 
I’m sundial that reveals 
How much you have accomplished. 

*Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
