Daffodils and Sunshine (Thank you D's son for the daffodil)

It's so dark inside my head
It's so dark outside my head
Until the sunshine comes
and the flowers bloom
The sun is very welcoming
and its brightness helps us to see beauty more clearly
The flowers make me sneeze
but I forgive them
You gave me a daffodil
It was very kind and it cheered me up
(It didn't make me sneeze)
I hope someone gives you a daffodil too
