Pieces of Me
by Luke Uebelher
I would never want to put you in my pocket 'cause you would suffocate.
I'd rather have you sit on my shoulders and tell me how strong I am
and occasionally smack me in the head when I'm going the wrong direction,
and encourage me in how fortunate I am to have you as my friend.
It would be so joyous to walk with you hand-in-hand
as you encourage me in my dreams
and help me stay focused on my goals,
while you simultaneously squint at me and say,
"If you don't listen to me I'm gonna put earwax candles in your ears so you hear me better".
Though we are miles apart,
I just look into FB and there I see your beautiful encouraging smile.
For when you truly love someone,
you'll let them spray you with essential oils
so you smell fresh all day
and make them proud.
