This song seems to be a song about a woman and her caring, healing love. Appearing in the midst of the vietnam war with the incongruous and poignant conflict between the war and the peace movement. This song is more appropriately thought of as an ode to a personal transition from inner darkness and turmoil to the 'sunlight' of peace and love.
