Sun Song

There was this girl. She sang with  a beauty that made the sun shine brighter with every tune that floated up to the sky.

But one day she stopped singing.  A strange little boy told her, that no one  gave a single shit about her little ditties.

She didn't cry.   She simply stopped singing, and went on about her life.

She kept to herself and the world began to  wonder why everything seemed so quiet.

Then the sun stopped shining.

He couldn't go on, making the world a brighter place, if she couldn't sing her songs to him each day.

One night, the moon visited the girl.  "My child, you know that the Sun longs to hear your voice again. Do not worry what little boys tell you, they cannot make the music that you can. This night will last for many years if you do not raise your voice. Go on, summon the Sun."

Reluctantly, she stepped outside, and with  a rusty voice,  she sang as loudly and as honestly as she could.

And as tears rolled down her cheeks, the  Sun rose in the east, with tears that evaporated into steam as quickly as they came.

And the strange boy fell in love with the way she looked  to him  when she  sang to the sky.
