To the Sunflowers

To the sunflowers on the side of the road
Brightening the land and lightening the loads
Of those headed to work, or leaving home
Going somewhere with a sour tone
A dreary drive day after day
But your sunshine keeps the misery away
Just a simple flower in the highway
Yellow petals on shades of gray
Here for a season and gone again
To tell us dark clouds do have an end
Thanks to the sunflower so simple and pretty
Reminding me to always find the beauty
When days get long and monotone
And I’m feeling like I’m all alone
So here’s to the flowers who ask for naught
And offer their shine even when its hot
You’re always there and you never goad
You beautiful sunflowers on the side of the road.
