"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you.
You have to go to them sometimes."

You are my sunshine, 
my only sunshine.
You make me happy 
when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, 
how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

The other night dear, 
as I lay sleeping,
I dreamt I held you in my arms.
When I awoke dear,

 I was mistaken,
So I hung my head down

 and cried.

You are my sunshine,

 my only sunshine.
You make me happy 

when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, 

how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

Oh, Joyce! I love this song! It has always been my song to my kids. (sniff sniff) If you haven't heard Carly Simon's cover of this song, you must find it. And grab a tissue when you do! Love you and can't wait to hug your neck!

When I was a very little girl,in the 1940's, a man they called "Sunshine" would hold me in his lap and sing this song to me. It has always been special.

Thank you so much for sharing it, Joyce.

It seems that song brings back memories to a lot of us. I sang it to my kids and my grandkids still ask me to sing it to them.
Thanks for the reminder.
