Lose the Sunglasses

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
