Sun On The Water

The sun painted a beam o'er the water to me
And I caught it and took it away.
It pervaded my heart with beauty and warmth
And I kept it all night and next day.

It is there for us all, if we bother to look
Darkest hours can turn into light
Miracles of nature, the sky and the sun
Transform us with all of their might.

I walk by the river, recapture the scene
As the sun sinks in sleep for the day
And there once again o'er the water so still
A sunbeam helps me on my way.
