Sunshine of Passion

by Todd Fletcher

The sunshine of passion cuts through this heart
Once blind to love I sat in the dark
Only whispers of the wind prevailing
A heart I slowly kept from failing
this love pours from seams I've stitched
a moments beauty that I once ditched
the ashes of time have escaped through my hand
now the beauty of love I've come to understand

I feel the rays of time drift in the wind
and it's this feeling I get when I'm cleansed of sin
See I got this great God shining in heaven above
lil' sprinkles turn to showers, the forecast called for love
I know there's a God who controls the weather
but it's a feeling I describe one cannot measure
it's something I call the sunshine of passion
that fills with a great sense of satisfaction

It gives me a high that I try to describe
but I use words that flow with a pen I scribe
this could have been a sonnet but it's more than fourteen lines
I see the skylines bleed of love with the ages of time
it takes me back to the days before I knew Christ
back before I gave Him my heart and accepted His life
it's this something I write called the sunshine of passion
it's this verb called love that's been put into action

It's roses for anguished heart that cries
it's this beauty called love that never dies
it's this feeling of satisfaction that I get
of all the memories and tragedy one cannot forget
It's for times that I thought my heart would fail
while drifting on the wings of a flightless sail
It's this passion that drives my heart to excel
a love of a God that from heaven fell

fell upon a heart that remembers His fight
while bleeding on a cross long ago one night
that blessed me with a passion to pursue
this dream made into reality upon wings that flew
flew upon the wings of endless grace
while staring into the beauty of my God's face
never denying for one second my faith
but remembering this heartache you came to erase
