Look For the Light Beyond the Dark Abyss

Sunflower, sunflower
Where do you Grow?
How do you Shine?
How is it So?
Sunflower, sunflower
What is you Task,
& Where is your Mask?

Flutter Bys,
And Sunset Skies
Wave their GoodByes!
As you Soar High,
They Fly By,
Like waves on The Sand.

Sunflower, sunflower
What is your Game?
Where is you Flame?
Why are you Named?

Sunflower, sunflower
Who is your Love,
& What is your Glove?

Sunlight Sighs,
And Moonlite Nigh's
Lye on Their Lies.
As you say Your Hi's,
They spread Their Dyes
Onto all that reaches Their Touch.

Sunflower, sunflower
I am your Love.
I give your Sheen.
I stretch you Above.
You are the Moon
And I am the Sun
Without me your Light would be None!
