Dear Sunshine

Dear Sunshine, 

Hey ummmm, hi there! I know you have quite the busy day and yeah, it’s raining again. It’s night time and I hope I’m not bothering you. So I’ll just leave this here just in case you pick it up or something. I don’t know really. 

I wrote this letter to tell you something. I hope you don’t get mad or anything, but I think I fell in love with you. Now yes you may have heard that I was in love with the rain, but that was before. And honestly, even if rain gets out of hand sometimes, that feeling of freshness that the rain brings just lifts up your soul sometimes. 

But enough of the rain, back to you. I think it all started when you entered my life and started making it all bright again. No matter how much I shut myself off from the world, your light suffuses into every corner of my being, touching my cold, cold heart in ways that bring it back to life. What’s more, you bring in all the colors that make life worth living. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all that you do. 

Which brings me to another thing. Why do you always have to go? You know how addicts go through withdrawal? Well that’s what happens to me. I search for you in the darkness. I stumble along blindly, hoping to find the last vestige of your touch in this cold and lonely night. 

Truth is, I miss you. I really do. Words escape me as to how orphaned I feel because you are not there, even if it takes only a night for you to return. It’s like a part of me becomes rudderless, a compass without a true North. I desperately need you in my life, even if I could only watch you from afar. 

All I want to say is that I’ll be waiting. I’ll wait for your first rays to touch me again and I’ll feel alive again. I’ll be waiting until I feel your warmth again. 

Still waiting, still yours, 

Ang Huling Hugotero

    What a piece of literature! You’re like Edgar Allan Poe, like Abraham Lincoln, who — in the depths of sadness (depression) can produce magnificent reading material!

    You inspire even as you moan. You beautifully plumb the depth of emotion, and so I look forward to what you will post when your spirit is soaring again…
