Jeff and Sheri Easter - Sunshine Lyrics

Sunshine Lyrics

All the doctors called her Sunshine
They kept her picture on the wall
She'd turned eleven in September
She was so brave to be so small
She loved the colored leaves of autumn
It was her favorite time of year
She'd lie in bed and watch them falling
Counting every moment dear

Life is so much sweeter
When you know it won't last long
Don't wait to take a picture
When the autumn leaves are gone

Billy was her little brother
He tried to be her Superman
Though he could tell that she'd grown weaker
Time was too hard to understand
So Daddy pointed out the window
As the tears fell from his eyes
He said when the last leaf has fallen
She'll be with Jesus in the sky

He said life is so much sweeter
When you know it won't last long
Don't wait to take a picture
When the autumn leaves are gone

Billy couldn't sleep that evening
If what his daddy said was true
He could hardly wait till morning
'Cause he knew exactly what to do
So he climbed the ladder to the treetop
And reached as far as he could reach
And with a smile, he started taping
The few left hanging leaf by leaf

And life is so much sweeter
When you know it won't last long
Don't wait to take a picture
When the autumn leaves are gone

One slow rain and the leaves are gone
And all that remains are memories
And sunshine

All the doctors called her Sunshine
They kept her picture on the wall
She'd turned eleven in September
She was so brave to be so small
