Sunlight gives life and light to everything on this planet.
When the sun is hidden behind the clouds the world feels gray and lifeless. Our life can feel like that too when we are missing that special someone we love.
Some people walk into our lives and give life to all that’s dead and rejuvenate a new life in us. They shine bright like sunlight into our gloomy days and make us feel happy to be alive. Every day spent with that person is warm and exciting. Their love reflects in everything they do and makes us feel complete and cheerful.
