If you were a sandwich,
I'd throw away the chips and pickle;
If you were a baseball game,
I'd hope for extra innings;
If you were an ice cream sundae,
I'd savor the whipped cream and the cherry on top;
If you were an omelet,
I'd skip the o.j. and the bacon;
If you were a sunset,
I'd wrap myself in your colors;
If you were a lilac, longing to bloom,
I'd gently sniff each little flower;
If you were my only candle,
I wouldn't need any other light;
If you will just walk with me a while,
I will always walk with you.
