About the Poem
This poem was written when I was just . . . plain . . . thinking. I wanted to write something that meant something. I wrote and wrote. I kept crinkling up those poems. I never got to actually submit my poems anywhere. When I looked at the final one, I was like, WOW. It's about my best- friend, Robi (Robin) . . . who means everything to me. Everything she does means a lot to me.

|Dry up my tears with your gentle winds,
For your words cease my tears.
Blow away my dark clouds,
For your strong winds blow them away.
Bring me happiness with your sun beams,
For your sunshine warms my soul.
Whisper me a deep secret with your breeze,
For your words bring me a warm feeling.
Put out my raging fire,
For your rain sizzles it down.
Everything you do is my everything,
And I'll never forget that you're my sunshine.
