Early this morning I got a text message that spoke briefly about the look of the early morning sun against downtown LA. Like most things, after i replied i heard a song in my head. for the longest time i could not – for my life – place what song i was hearing and when in my life i had heard it. A couple of hours later i remembered the when – my ninth summer on this world – the introduce-er…my father.

He sang the song and i could hear his voice as if it were today…

“sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain, sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain, now that dark days are done and the bright days are here. my sunny one shines so sincere…”

Not long after hearing the lyrics i remembered the entire Bobby Hebb song – SUNNY

i love this song, for everything it reminds me of and for everything it is…

One Response to “Sunny”

  1. Great song! I haven’t heard it in years! I’m pretty sure we use to play this on record and dance in my aunt’s living room when I was a kid. 🙂
