“Even if I don’t have much to my name, even with the ups and downs that come with the fame I know you’re my baby, my darling… priceless. The moment I sat eyes on you I knew I would fall. You make it better.” Raheem DeVaughn
I don’t know why I’m writing this note to sunshine, I can’t see myself ever calling someone this for a nickname but the sun is shooting through my office right now so it just makes sense. I went to sleep last night at maybe six thirty and didn’t wake up until my alarm clock went off this morning. I supposed my body was just tired but it must have worked because I feel amazing right now.
And when I wake up feeling amazing it’s usually because I had a good dream. I can only remember bits and pieces of it but I do remember a kiss and a hug and a smile. Maybe there was a pineapple and a briefcase. It was rather random but then again I’m a random guy.
I’m writing this to no one in particular or maybe I’m writing it to someone very particular. All I know is life has a way of balancing out, of introducing us to people that will shape us, the way we think, the way we feel, the way we touch.
Watching this sunshine come through these blinds gives me such spirit, such calm. Gives me hope that my priceless moments are right around the corner.
So wherever you are at this exact moment whether it’s getting out of bed, in your car on your way to work or kissing the guy I’ll eventually take you from goodbye… Just know this.
You’re beautiful because you’re perfect in my mind before I ever met you.
You’re calming because the thoughts I have of you fluctuate from sex to compassion to lust to just a smile.
You’re sweet because I imagine these different scents and smells coming off your pores after a hot shower or bath.
You’re everything we need each other to be and that I’m sure of!
So Good Morning Sunshine and be careful today, I love you.
