Juillet je t'aime (Affectionately known as : I hate winter)

By
dear sun,

i understand that you're tired
and need to keep sleeping
but
i just wanted to let you know
that you don't even need to call me
whenever it is that you end up rolling out of bed
because i'll be waiting
and i won't be offended if you just show up.
honestly.
just swing on by anytime,
i just got a popcorn maker
so we could maybe make some popcorn
if you're into that sort of thing.
if you're not that's okay,
i don't really like popcorn that much anyways.
i mean, there are lots of other things we could do,
like go to the beach
or even just go for a walk.
i feel like over all of these years we've never just hung out
i feel like i've just sort of used you.
i'm sorry for that.
if that is the reason why you haven't been around lately,
then i promise to make it up to you when you wake up.
i mean it, i'll do anything.
because you really do mean a lot to me
and having spent these past couple months
without you around has really sucked.
anyways, i'll let you go.
i'm sorry and i miss you okay?
just poke your head through my window
whenever it is you wake up.

This is really humorous and clever! What I like the most is that you used 'common' language... no fancy words or anything. Great job :)

I LOVE THIS!!! Although, where I live, it's rather hot... I adore this poem! I want to print it out so I can read it when it starts getting chilly.
