If I were....

If I were a tree,
I would shelter you,
From rain and wind and snow.

If I were a star,
I would light your way,
So you would never be lost in the dark.

If I were a wall,
You could lean on me,
When you’re weary from walking too long.

If I were a rainbow,
I’d brighten the sky wherever you are,
So you would never feel alone.

But I am not a rainbow, not a wall, nor a star or a tree.
I’m just Me.
And that is all I will ever be.
