The Sun Came Out Today


The sun came out today
Though the skies were grey
And I was feeling rather blue
In an strange kind of way

It was a delightful surprise
It turned my day around
From feeling it was lost
To feeling it was found

It only took an instant
But the effect lasted long
Like the notes of music
Transformed into song

Like the flame of a fire
On a cold winters night
Or a gentle, tender touch
After a frightening sight

Yes – the sun came out
Though the skies stayed grey
Shining through - kind words
That a friend sent my way
