You are my Sunshine

Your are my Sunshine is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge.

May I say that I don´t like this song at all? It´s a classic from 1939 (recorded then by the Pine Ridge Boys, but written in 1937), and there are about 350 cover versions, for example by Doris Day, Bing Crosby and Johnny Cash, but I really don´t like it ... 

I don´t like its musical simplicity, the simple lyrics and the fact that there´s nobody I could sing it for. 

If you´re alone, you have to find other things or creatures that enlighten you and are your sunshine - in my case, flowers and especially birds make me happy every day. How about you? Do you have someone or something who or what makes you happy?

Your sun-woman is really superb!
And your card is very touching Marion.
That said, you have all my respect for daring to say what you think of this song.
We also have many birds around us and enjoy their singing and colourful presence every day.

This piece is lovely. Your comments about the words and being alone made me think a little bit. But I can't write my thoughts. But I will say Nature provides beauty and "sunshine".
