If You'll be...

If you'll be my peach..., I'll be your tree
Together we will live side by side - you and me
I'll shade you from harm..., from the wind and the cold
Wrap you in love with my branch till I'm old

Sing you a song as light as the sky
Rock you to sleep - wipe each tear from your eye
As sure as the time and the ocean sea's sand
I'll touch your warm heart as I hold your soft hand

And if, in your time, you are tossed by the wind
I'll stand 'gainst all odds and shall fast be your friend
And should you feel lost. . . I'll be there by your side
So close will I be should you need me as guide

The best that I have will I place at your feet
Give all that I own 'cause your juice is so sweet
Tenderly love. . . we will hold to each tight
As rain melts the time in the dark bliss of night

As you age like the vine, I will change as you do
Be there step by step just to see you get through
And when my night comes and I cannot find day
May you journey with God. . . all the rest of the way

I normally like to give out criticism about people's writing but your song is mistake free! Good job there buddy!

I agree with all the ladies here...and then some. This gem passed me by when you first wrote it and I am glad you bought it back. I can see this as a song to a very special lady in your life.

This one made me all teary. I think it's all that rare tenderness - touches a deep core of mine. I'm always fascinated by your ability to rhyme your poetry as I've always loved this style but find it's going quite out of fashion (so they tell me) - which is such a shame. Please...don't listen to 'them'...and keep adding to the world this particular quality of yours. We'd be poorer without it.
