O Sunshine

O Sunshine

Sprinkle some of yourself on my front lawn
Where I usually sit, sipping coffee at dawn
Let the yellow in your gold kiss my cheeks
Let it caress me like I would to a gentle fawn

Filter down for a few days, even a few weeks
For the sodden grass, nay, everything reeks
Of moldy moisture that the rain had brought
Sunshine your stay my heart eagerly seeks.

Wrap me in warmth, aah! The solace is sought
The heater is useless, the one I recently bought
My aged arthritic bones creak with grim pain
They crave a loving embrace and else naught

O sunshine, come, chase away this infernal rain
I prefer the sunny days so I don’t need my cane
This winter of my life is sapping me to the bone
Be my companion until I leave the earthly plain.
