Peaking Through the Pinholes

By Rick HenryPublished 5 months ago 1 min read

Sunshine bring me a bouquet of beauty

Sunshine bring me a face that is cheerful

Sunshine grace me with love eternity

Sunshine love me even when I'm tearful


Peaceful shower me with your enchantment

Peaceful guide me through these forlorn moments

Peaceful keep me from feeling resentment

Peaceful hold me throughout the self-torments


Mother I love you more than words can say

Mother your advice steers me through the night

Mother I need you each and every day

Mother your soft words are my guiding light


Sunshine remember me when there is no light

Sunshine please hold me through the darkened night


About the Creator

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.
