Sunlight Is Your Name

Sunlight is your name
Filled with golden rays
Piercing through my heart
Cutting through the haze.

I've watched you grow with first a walk
Then running.............then disaster
You chose the hard way often
And the pain it took to get there.

Your voice may not be heard
Nor your blue eyes can I see
As you journey through your life
Sometimes far away from me.

The bonds between us only strengthen
As they widen, stretch, and sway
Unbreakable and unstoppable
Even on a cloudy day.

We always travel soul in soul
The two of us as one
You are my gift from Heaven
Oh soul who is my son.
