Sun's Light


Jerry DeKeyser

I knew there would be a sunrise,
Upon this dear sweet day,
I can see the rays as I rise,
On an extraordinary day in May,

Addicted to the light I am,
A prison it keeps me in,
Then the prison asked me if my name is Sam,
I now confess I love this prison a prison of no sin,

Its rays of light are chains,
Its leaving impression is more valuable than gold,
The sounds my prison brings to me is louder than a hundred roaring trains,
Sometimes I wish I could fit into this sun, my prison's perfect mold,

I know I can not stay,
Within my prison's perfect mold,
I must seize the day,
Break from my prison's hold,

The rays dance upon my face and tickle my nose,
I'm happy that I'm here put upon this great green earth,
I know my true value even if a little part I will put on no shows,
I will use my true value and help this world with all I'm worth.
