May You Shine
lyric to a jazz melody by Joe Locke*


I know our time is only slowing light
Slowing to show us every year
As time shines on us pure and bright
May you shine here (and everywhere)
Just so the sun can see its light
And warm my night my dear
We're speeding to another night
That is luminous (3) everywhere

Suns shine everywhere...

F.W. Locke
