Sunshine Faces - Poem by David Harris

Whenever the sun is out,
the world always looks brighter.
People put on their sunshine faces,
with smiles always wide.
The blues seem to vanish
into the colour of the sky.
Everyone looks happy,
even the breeze blows a warm sigh.
As we look around,
and breathe in the fresh air.
The world seems for a short time
lost without a care.
