I found my little home in the suburbs, I always dreamed of.

As I face south, I see the interstate from my window
A new day is dawning
Those things seemed so far-away
long ago-

The dreams I thought would
never come true
The ballfield, the light
The beautiful blue sky
It's all in the midst
traditions are new again
family takes center stage

After hardships and struggle
I see the light at the end of the road
There is great joy to behold
Yes, I will live now
count my blessings
and tell stories when I'm wise and old

The Sun is Rising
I'm basking in it's glow
I have much to learn
and much I want to know

For you must always dream
of a better day
These things can happen when you have hope
Live your life in broad visions
don't limit yourself to a tiny microscope

No matter who you are
if you dare to dream
Hope will take you far

I can tell this story

For -
The Sun is Rising
I'm here to see
the wait has been long
but I've kept standing patiently

My  new little home
in the far suburbs
away from the traffic and noise
as I watch over these three little boys

The Sun is Rising
I'm basking in it's glow
I have waited so long
Now, I finally get to say hello.
