By: Rachel A. Gallegos


Sunshine that is what I call you. Because when you smile it’s like a ray of light hitting my soul, it is what
I call you because my body soaks up the vibrations of your voice as if it were vitamin D. Sunshine is your
name because the warmth I feel from your skin is like a perfect summer’s day.

Sunshine because the Moon even on its brightest nights could not possibly compare to the light you
shine on your cloudy days, Sunshine because without you growth seems so far away.
