If I Were...

If I were a month I’d be August

If I were a day I’d be Sunday

If I were a time of day I’d be 6 pm

If I were a font I’d be Georgia

If I were a sea animal I’d be a turtle

If I were a direction I’d be West

If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a lounger

If I were a liquid I’d be water

If I were a gemstone I’d be a ruby

If I were a tree I’d be a banyan tree

If I were a tool I’d be an awl

If I were a flower I’d be a gerbera daisy

If I were an element of weather I’d be rain

If I were a musical instrument I’d be a drum

If I were a color I’d be yellow

If I were an emotion I’d be joy

If I were a fruit I’d be a strawberry

If I were a sound I’d be loud

If I were an element I’d be helium

If I were a car I’d be reliable

If I were a food I’d be a sopapilla

If I were a place I’d be Kihei, Hawaii

If I were a material I’d be rock

If I were a taste I’d be lemon

If I were a scent I’d be freshly cut grass

If I were a body part I’d be a hand

If I were a song I’d be an instrumental by Stevie Ray Vaughn

If I were a bird I’d be a chickadee

If I were a gift I’d be blue

If I were a city I’d be near water

If I were a door I’d be open

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be invisible (I hate shoes)

If I were a poem I’d be i carry your heart with me by E. E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

What would you be?
