Sunny Day

You left us so young
Before we even knew
A pain I didn't understand
And never wanted to

My little sister
I'd teach you so much
Like how to pick on mom
And take a punch

I waited and waited
For you to arrive
But never did I think
my first hello
Would be my last goodbye

But on a sunny day
The pain goes away
And it's all gone
But not for long
only on a sunny day

I was only eight
When i said goodbye
But maybe we'll meet
At another place
At another time
On a sunny day
Where it never rains
Where there's no heartache
and no more pain

Maybe we'll get to meet
In this heavenly place
And maybe I'll finaly get to see a smile
On your face
But untill then
I'll pray for a sunny day
