My darling, Sunrise

You’re the most mysterious thing

 I’ve ever seen

You’re misery and joy

And all that’s in between.

You see all the colors that I’ve tried to hide

There’s no hiding from you

My darling, Sunrise.
But if you ask me no questions 

I will not tell you lies.

You can look at my face

And see the truth in my eyes.

And when one day

Like all things must

you die

You should die knowing

 you’re the love of my life.
The years keep on running

And they don’t slow down

And the longer they run

The less I know how

To keep my head up

Above Time’s wicked tides

But you remind me to breathe

My darling, Sunrise.
If I could

I would throw myself 

Down at your feet

If you might

 think it cute

I’d  be complacent and sweet

If it convinced you to stay

I’d make you a home

But as day turns to night

So too do you go.

(X2)

You’re just a dream 

Just a moment in time

When I lost my head

With no real reason or rhyme

But now I know why the moon

Chases the sun

Cause the love that 

she has for him 

Carries her on.
You are the bird

I am the gun

But my trigger 

Is stuck 

And it can’t be undone.

If that makes me a coward

Then a coward I’ll die

As long as you’re flying

My darling, Sunrise.
If I could
I would throw myself 

Down at your feet

If you might

think it cute

I’d be complacent and sweet

If it convinced you to stay

I’d make you a home

(But as day turns to night

So too do you go.

(X2)

The moon will never

Catch the sun she knows

But she lights up the darkness

With hope beyond hope

So I’ll send you my love

On the wings of the bees

And the whisper of wind

As it touches the trees

But if you should doubt

Or feel alone

Know that I love you

My darling, Sunrise.
