Bright ones you are always with me,
Giving me strength to continue, when none is left.
I see you every time I see the love in a child’s eyes,
Or in the beauty of the magnolia or azalea in springtime.
I see you in greeting the first rays of the rising sun.
I see you as moonlight dances on white capped waves.
Bright ones you are always with me, sharing my joy and happiness.
I see you in the cleansing of the warm spring rain.
I see you in the clouds as my daydreams on a lazy summer day
I see you in the multicolored hues of the autumn day
I see you as virgin snow on winters first day
Bright ones you are always with me, making me content, and never far from home.
I see you in the quicksilver of the flowing stream.
I see you in the majesty of snow covered peaks
I see you in my never-ending connection to the universe.
I see you in the caring heart of a friend
Bright ones you are always with me
