i have been trying to focus
on something great to say
though, i seem to be drifting
to an oneiric land
leaving my mind in the clouds
and my feet on the ground

so you see, tonight
i have nothing grand to say
because i was thinking
about the sunshine
and its effulgence

then i realized,
this is what i need to say,

that i'm just a sunflower
blowing in the breeze
dreaming about touching the clouds
at least i will in my sleep.

you are the sky
sending simple rays of light
letting my yellow petals
grow closer to you

you are the only sunshine i need.

that's what i should have said.
