In response to the To Whom It May Concern Writing Assignment
Every year, I wait for you so desperately and when you do arrive, I waste my time getting angry at you for not staying long enough. To lose you so quickly when I love you so much? What the heck! And while I am still getting used to the fact that it’s finally warm, you just abandon me in the middle of cold weather. I have every right to be mad at you. How dare you do this to me every single year?
The anger remains… but something has changed over the years. I have started to value you more because you pass by so quickly. I have learned to roam around the streets as much as I can with you. I love you more than anything else in the world and you know that. Every day in the winter, I pray that all of this would soon be over. And you know why? Because I know that at the end of all this will be you, holding me in your warm sunlight with flowers to beautify my way. I love that you make the flowers grow just so I can look at them and be all happy just because they are there. You make me forget about where am I in life or what I have accomplished or not; with you, my love, I am just me. A simple person who can smile for no reason, be excited for no reason and be active for no reason at all. These are the joys you bring to my life. Do you understand? You make me me.
So, dear summer, I promise to make the most of you every year; so promise me that you’ll always stay a bit longer, right beside me. So that we can go for bike rides, listen to live music, watch sunsets, camp, plant and watch flowers grow, go for random walks, try something new and most importantly, lay down under the clear blue sky – just you and me. I love you so much, dear Summer. And I know that you love me too.
Forever and for always,
You sweetheart Ish <3
