it is often said
that those who deserve the sun
too often receive the rain

but what if i said,
i adore the rain?

that the droplets of water
upon your tan skin,
beat the heat waves
any day?

i'd much rather have
an umbrella over you and i,
than stand in the shade and hide
do you think i'm afraid?

would my punishment
be replaced with flames-
would i go to hell?

that's what they tell me anyways

either way,
i'm not ashamed to say
this is who i am
and my god, do i love the rain
