Helen, Another Name For Sunray


(Dedicated to my Mom, Helen Harris and to every Helen)

Helen, another name for sunray
Awakens each fresh new day
Warms the backs of the birds
Giving them a chorus of songs

She shines through every rock and crevice
Leads the breeze through the trees
Grins upon the flowers and plants
And glistens upon the waters

She engraves light upon souls she meets
Offers hope to dying potential
Sheds light on darkened hearts
Her light is always glowing

As birthday candles are lit
To celebrate the day of a Helen
May all the candles wished upon bring forth
More light and the dreams and hope it brings

Happy Birthday, Helen

To Helen:
With Love Kimberly Angela Harris
