If I Was

If I was a stream
Searching for the ocean
You would be my current
Keeping me in motion.

If I was a seed
Buried in the snow
You would be my sunlight
Helping me to grow.

If I was a spark
In the middle of the night
You would be my flame
Keeping me alight.

If I were a ship
On a stormy morning
You would be my lighthouse
Flashing me warning.

But I’m not a stream
Spark, ship, or seed
I am a person
And it’s you that I need.

I do not need a current
Lighthouse, flame, or the sun
All I need is love
And for me, you are the one.
