Sunshine in my Backyard

From the last two days I've seen no night,
No darkness, no dusk, no rains, no blight.
My orchard's flowers seem to shine bright.
Birds chirp around and butterflies alight.
Grandmother's woven the sweater, at last,
of Brother's embroidered shirt's size.
From the last two days I can hardly count
The days of happiness I've lived in disguise.
Summer ain't so hot nor have I seen Winter's chill.
From the last two days, life doesn't seem so hard.
No, don't bring me the stars from the sky,
I'm planting sunshine in my backyard.
