I recently went on a date with a man who talked about getting a tattoo.

“I don’t have any,” he said. “I just haven’t found anything meaningful enough,” he continued.

“If I do get a tattoo, it will be of a sun,” he suddenly decided. He went on to tell me why. My date has a six-year-old daughter and they have a Beatles song that they always dance to together. It’s called “Here Comes the Sun.”

In that moment, I thought of my own father. Read the rest of the story and about Sujeiry’s date on Babble Relationships!
