Poet's Notes
(Show)

This poem was written for Colin, a young boy with autism.  The poem is part of a gift I put together for him to give to each special person in his 'village', his teachers & caretakers.  The poem is the card which goes with a hand-painted stone magnet that reads 'you are my sunshine'.

You Are My Sunshine

Sun light, sun bright.
You shine your rays.
You bring the light.

With beams of orange, 
Yellow & white,
They float around me,
Hug me tight.

You give me strength,
The courage to fight,
To make a difference
With all my might.

Every day and
Every night
I hold you close
You are MY light.

    Thank you Darren...and yet, I've already tweaked and changed it. I am happy with the end result. I haven't written a poem in a very long time but I tried because I wanted something special to accompany the stones. It would be my pleasure to create a stone for you as well and include my poem with it. Send me your address in a message. :-)
