I Wish I were.....

I wish I were a pebble laying on the beach,

And you the waves washing over me.

To feel you above, beneath-all around

Then carry me with you, to be one with the sea.


I wish I were a candle's wick

Tightly embraced by your burning flame,

And as the heat consumes us both

We burn together, and become the same.


I wish I were a tiny ripple

And you the rivers flow,

Then you could catch me as you pass

And take me always where you go.


I wish I were a shining star

And you the darkness of the night.

Then we could look forever down

Upon the world, for it's delight.

This is very interesting. Really gets you thinking about what is important in life. Sometimes just being with somebody means everything.
