I called you, “Sunshine.”

Sunshine because it suited you best
And “Hey, wassup Beautiful Smile,” doesn’t flow too smoothly off the tongue
But I know we did
We spoke the love language so fluently that it evolved into different dialects and forms
Like our love slang, laid back like the time I set up a picnic at the park for us
Fresh fruit, fresh you, freshly cut grass outlined us two
Clear day, sunny blue
Oh and yeah, I had sunshine…times two
And then there’s the proper grammar of our love
Speaking each sentence with meaningful diction and conviction
The declaration of our deepest feelings were always careful of minding their proper usage
But who woulda thought that others would mind our own P’s and Q’s for us
When they sat at the other table starving and pointing fingers at our delicious dish
Dishing on the juiciest falsehoods and fibs that left them with empty calories and empty minds
“Forget them Sunshine.” I said
But rainy days and grey clouds weren’t cliche enough for you to welcome them into our world
So they say rain can wash away the pain, but when the levels rose
Our love drowned in the depths of your own doubts
Tears blended well with the drops of rain that helped you maintain your stoic, angelic demeanor
And me?
I ain’t thrown a picnic since.

The sun shines best when we recognize it’s merely there in the first place
But when it’s gone, Sunshine
Wishing well waters suddenly taste better within nostalgic conversations
Joni Mitchell REALLY didn’t lie
And fresh fruit, a fresh you and freshly cut grass get traded in for a computer monitor flickering in the middle of the night and a keyboard tapping out to surrender

Simple steps into sleep
Careful dreams till I awake
Who will I shine for today?……..
