The song played softly from the car stereo.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

I remember when your familiar voice spoke those words never once did I hate to hear.

You make me happy when skies are gray

I remember how you ensconced me into your embrace that day when it stormed, and I felt relief.

You'll never know, dear, how much I love you

The months weren't enough. They came too early. They even took you away. They shouldn't have.

"She has Stockholm Syndrome," they say.

They're wrong.

I fell for you.

Please don't take my sunshine away
