Sunshine

I never liked hot days.
With the sun glaring at my skin,
darkening it at every second,
all I could feel was beads of sweat trickling down my skin.

Then cue sweaty clothes, sticky hair, and increasing consciousness of one’s own body odour.
All I could think of was how awful this hell was.

Today,
You pulled my hand and said, “Let’s not take things for granted,”
Today was sunny, but it wasn’t bad.
Was it because of your hand holding mine?

Today,
I could feel the sun lightly kissing my skin,
the wind tickling the back of my neck,
and the fresh smell of frangipani relaxing my mind.

Today,
I could see the joy in other people’s faces,
I wonder what is making them smile right now,
because I take one look at you and I know my reason.

Today was sunny, but I liked it.

Do,
The day we first met.
The day I noticed you.

Re,
The first time we went out.
The day I saw colourful flowers, brighter than ever.

Mi,
The second time we went out.
The day I felt sparks in my heart.

Fa,
The day it rained.
The day we shared an umbrella.

Sol,
The beautiful sunny day.
The day it stormed inside my heart.

I’m waiting for our La, Ti, and Do.
For the crescendo towards our dolce climax.
