My most faithful companion
Is following me
Sunrays in the sky needed
I am your most faithful companion on sunny days,
I come into existence as soon as you are born and
The first sunrays pop in through the window bathing you.
Try not to disengage me on such days as I follow all
The movements of your body when you walk, talk, sit
Listen to your favorite hit
Your clothes fit or don’t fit
But when the sky darkens I disappear.
The eye of a storm kills me with its thorn,
Even the slightest clouds treat me with merciless scorn.
I pray to stay
And yell so well
I am the dum(b)bell
Of the body I dwell
Once the good weather is restored I am reborn
To follow you through life’s pleasures and pains.
You’ll carry me until your death
And I will listen to your breath
To your soul, to your heart pulsation.
I am your most faithful companion
But only on sunny days.
