please don't take our sunshine away

please don't take
our sunshine away we say
as so many fires
continue to burn
throughout our province
the smoky skies a reminder
of how quickly everything
can be taken away
by the carelessness
of those who don't seem to give
a damn about others
it's friday afternoon
the long weekend upon us
the pinnacle of summer
here in Vancouver
everyone taking to the streets
to celebrate Pride
thankful there are enough people out there
who give a damn about us
give a damn
about the kind of world
we want our kids to grow up in
a world where they always
have something to be happy about
even when skies are grey
