I’M NOT THE SUN

I’m not the sun
not nearly bright enough
or hot enough
to brighten your day
warm your frozen ground
No
I’m not the sun
I don’t command your orbit
order your seasons
compel your very life
I’m a little light
warmer than the candle
I hold to you
if you let me
I can
brighten a moment
encourage a smile
warm a bit of your heart
I’m not the sun
not the brightest star
in your sky
but I have light
and love
and laughter to share
if you’ll just look
my way
