Sunshine After - Poem by Scarborough Gypsy

She’s like sunshine after rain
She lights up a room
And lightens the mood
When she smiles the world smiles
The birds sing and butterflies fly
Flowers bloom and the moon chuckles
Her face can launch a million stars
The epitome of fun and laughter
Chocolate cheesecake and peppermint ice
Full of the spice of life
Uninhibited and carefree
She reminds me of me
A long time ago now
When I was fourteen.

    Yes Herbert, I do agree with you. It sounds much better.

    Thanks for that.

    Excellent, Gypsy.4th line, do you think it might be better to leave 'too' out?
    Just a thought, Nadja.
