If I were a wall...

I'd fall down around you
and build you a home where you can be
safe and warm
I'd keep out the cold
yes I'd be your shelter
If I were a wall


If I were a storm...

I'd gently pass over and send down my rain sweet rain to comfort your tears
I'd fade till the sun could shine down upon you
If I were a storm

If I were a garden...
I'd bring many beautiful things into your world
I'd freshen your days with my aroma
I'd soften your walk with my petals
I'd brighten your life with my many colors
If I were a garden

If I were a kiss....

I'd seal every promise and follow the soft sweet scent
from your lips
I'd comfort your lips and I would hold them if only for a moment
If I were a kiss

If I were a prayer...
I would rise without ceasing
lifting you higher with every breath that I take
I'd cover your sorrows with only a whisper
If I were a prayer

If I were.....

thanks alwye, whtdove and severn
glad you enjoyed it, still kind of new at this thing, your compliments are the fuel i need for inspiration.
by the way note the name change, I was Poohbear, thought it was more appropriate
