Sunshine stay with me a while I haven’t had you for so long
You are gentle and make me laugh and sing a happy song
We will not speak of love unless it should happen to grow
We will just run and play, you are a shelter from the cold
You are just the thing I need to help me heal again
There is no way of knowing if we will ever end
Sunshine stay with me a while we will both be free
You are just the thing I need, you let me be me

Glad to see a part of you I never got to know in those bygone days. Thanks for the peek. -David
Thank you. It is pretty poor writing but there it is. Haha! I was very insecure back then but could never let it show or at least tried to not let it show but such is the way of high school right? I remember at our last reunion David Wenzel said I was one of the unattainable pretty crowd but the truth is I was searching for acceptance like everyone else. The “popular group” or whatever you want to call it is a doubes edged sword. Cute both ways and we are all usually very misunderstood!
I just went to my 45th reunion last weekend. More enjoyable now that we’re not as worried about what others think, and as a result, less drinking. Had fun.
Exactly. Just enjoying who we are now! God is good!
