I saw you standing in the light today,
when the sun broke through the clouds.
You were reaching for your dreams,
not letting them slip away.
Anchored, strong, determined,
you stretched out your hand,
raised up on the balls of your feet?
up on your toes, you reached so high!

I could see the sun’s golden rays
streaming down around you,
lighting you up, transformed.
Your eyes reflected sunlight, and
your heart blazed like treasure
when the lid is raised on long hidden
gold doubloons, shimmering diamonds,
and crimson rubies lit with an inner fire,
just waiting for a chance to shine
