Bronze Star - 2,940 Points (26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

You and The Sun

The sun tiptoed around the room,
When it entered, I was unaware;
It looked for you on the bed, on the floor,
It was looking everywhere

But I was laying there alone
While the sun continued its search;
Across the ceiling, from wall to wall,
Like a hymn circling 'round the church

Then the sun did pause and rest,
The fiery glow was next to me;
I recalled how warm your body felt
Caught up in love's ecstasy

The sun got up and crossed the room,
It glided across the floor;
It followed in your footsteps, and soon,
It disappeared through an open door

Take a moment - digest the irony,
You and the sun - one and the same;
When you left the sun did follow,
The rays of love, answering to your name!
