The sunlight…

It's not for me

Never was for me

The sunlight,

Forever shining

Forever guiding

No, it's not for me

The sunlight,

With rays of light

With brilliant colors

No, it's not for me

The sunlight,

Golden, so promising

Life-like, so vibrant

No, it's not for me

Never was for me

I can only watch

Watch as it rises

And sinks

I can only listen

To the laughter and clamor

In the sunlight

No, it's not for me

Never was for me

I'm just stuck here

Not in darkness

And yet out of the light

I can see them

Those shining people

In the sunlight

No, it's not for me

Never was for me

But

This hand

It oh-so-gently lingers

Waiting for me

But

This smile

It warms me to the core

Like I imagine the sunlight would

No, it's not for me

Never was for me

But

Maybe

Just maybe

It can become mine

Something for me

So I'll take that hand

The careful hand

And return that smile

With my own warm, sunny smile

And break free from it

This binding curse

No, it's not for me

Never was for me

But it is now

And I enter its embrace

Delve into the sunlight

The hand never leaves mine
