lyrics

Sunflowers

Then
in my time of darkness
my only view of the world
was the concrete yard below
I would watch
the sunflowers rise
above the far wall
turning their heads
to follow the path of the sun
I could hear
children laughing
as they played
around the noble plants
I never saw them
but I knew that
while the flowers danced
and the children played
there was always hope

Now
I sit in the garden
beyond the wall
and can see the haunted tower
clouded in haze
I can see
the sunflowers rise
above the wall
turning their heads
to follow the path of the sun
the children still laugh
as they play
around the noble plants
and I am glad
that I believed
that while the flowers dance
and the children play
there is always hope

Charles Antony
