Of all the things that I could be,
I should like to be a tree,
Towering above the world in silent majesty.

Of all the things that I could be,
I should like to be a butterfly,
A thing of beauty not asking why.

Of all the things that I could be,
I should like to be a bird,
Then I would be a pleasure to be heard.

Of all the things that I could be,
Most of all I think
I should like to be me (but I don't).

To learn to be yourself, is a wonderful feat.
It is always a very hard obstacle to overcome.
Yet another wonderful poem.

The pick-me-up is appreciated. Been in a way-down mood lately.

One of my favorite things to be...
Is a friend of yours thats plain to see!
And if you were anything else-to me
It simply would be a Tragedy!


------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...

I don't have to tell you that you loved for you do I? If you were not you, where would I be?
