Dear Friend - Rays of Sunshine

Updated on December 14, 2015
Source

A poem - Specially dedicated to Linda Bilyeu,

A wonderful Hubber and a great friend, known out here in HubPages as

"Sunshine625".


Brilliant rays of sunshine

Scintillating vibrant colors

Bright spring of hope changing

Buds into colorful flowers


A bright spot of sunlight

On a dark cloudy day

Bringing on sweet smiles

Forever here to stay


Everywhere you go

You light up and shine

A true friend forever

A treasure to find


Sharing caring and generous

That is what you are

A person beyond compare

Sunshine that’s who you are

      Great poem, great subject. I think the great gulf between darkness and light is why we appreciate the SUN so. Sunshine makes us smile...it is a beautiful and glorious gift of our Creator. Thanks for sharing.

      "Golden drops of sun", that Vellur says it all for Linda. No matter what is happening in her life there is a smile on her face. She faces any challenge and the smile and her love still shine through.

      Great tribute Nithya- isn't it a strange coincidence that we've both chosen a John Denver song for our tribute hubs. Denver must have a stock of sunshine songs! A beautiful tribute to a beautiful heart. well done!

      Gee, am I the first to comment on this great poem for our friend and co-Hubber, Sunshine???

      I love your poem and the sentiment, and I know it will mean a lot to Sunshine that you took the time and effort to create this Birthday poem for her.

      I always run out of adjectives when I try to describe Linda (Sunshine), but she is one of a kind!

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LINDA.
