The sun loved you so much when you were young
That it peppered you with kisses
Not in any order or with any pattern
Just in a way that said,
“I love you.”

Now your freckles have faded
And your pale complexion only burns from its rays
It’s not that the sun loves you any less
It just doesn’t know how to love any other way
And your skin just wanted a different kind of love

And although the sun has hurt you in the past
It will never stop shining upon you
The sun will always be there.
Love will always be there.

So, just be careful and protect yourself
Because when winter comes
And the days are cold and dark
You will wish for the sun to return.

And when it returns
You get ready
and you bask again in that love
