My Sun


My Sun,

Do you remember?

The day you came here from across the other side of the world.

It was rainy that day, but the gloomy clouds didn’t stop you from exploring this new place.

I was praying I’d get to see you. I did.

I was excited and seeing you made my face light up like a child on Christmas day.

My heart felt full. I felt safe even though we were apart.

I felt a comfort that I’d never felt before. It was like I could do anything as long as you were here.

These feelings are more indescribable than anyone could ever imagine.

That was the day I realized dreams do come true.

I miss you now; more than I’ve ever missed anyone or anything.

It’s another rainy day, and I’m sitting in the car looking out the window.

Thinking to myself about that day we met.

You know, it’s funny, I asked for something from God and he’s giving it to me.

I think God is working on something that looks like a coincidence.

It would be funny if we met again.

I’m still at the same red light, but my mind won’t shut off; it keeps wondering how you’re doing.

Are you doing well? Have you been eating well? Is your mental health doing okay? 

It’s 2:03 a.m. for you, are you resting? You have such long days at work please take time to rest.

Things like this are funny to me.

I never believed in love. Somehow you came into my life when I needed someone after losing multiple. When I needed the sun to shine. It’s ironic how your name means sun because you really did light up my life. You smiled and the fog cleared in my mind.

Do you remember what you promised back then?

You promised to come back.

So, I’ll wait as long as it takes; I promise.
