The sun still shines

Even when there are

times of down

and spirals that

move our minds

to the worst

of places,

the sun still shines,


At moments when

the world is crammed full

of delicious victories

and fist-pumping triumphs,

and nothing,

it seems,

can defeat our ways

to the top,

the sun still shines.


When there is loss

and the sting of tragedy,

and it appears like

the treasures

we admired so much,

and for so long,

have been

stolen away,

still the sun shines.


Our living,

and our breathing,

our waking days

and sleeping nights,

exist in the fact

that the sun

still shines.
