Sweet Things

So many things I will bring to you.

Some tart, some sour, some sweet.

All manner of things I will bring to you,

so taste and try, maybe you'll like me

enough to throw away all the treats

So many things I will bring to you.

A soft hand, a thinking mind, a beating heart.

All manner of things I will bring to you

So hold your head high, maybe you'll like me

enough to never need anything else.

So many things I want to show you,

This ice cream, that bike trail, this stream.

All manner of things, I want to show you,

so take a look, maybe you'll like me

enough to want me to show you more.

So many things that I want to tell you,

but for now I will only say one:

All manner of sweet things I want to tell you

so let me whisper in your ear, and maybe you'll like me

enough to want me to tell you more.

The End
