If I Were Your Shoes

If I were your pair of shoes…

 

I’d cradle your feet in my strength,

And hold them with a tender fascination while I was lucky enough to be with you.

I’d keep your toes warm, but not too warm,

So that you would want to wear me no matter the season.

I’d surely be fine and lasting,

So that you could depend on me for so many years to come.

I’d make you feel light and free,

So you would dance whenever you put me on.

I’d take you to the most wonderful places,

So that you could see all incredible things this world has to offer you.

 

Oh… if I were your shoes.

If I were your shoes.

 

I’d take my work seriously,

So that you would know you could always depend on me.

And I would be gorgeous, but not too gorgeous,

So that everyone would notice you and not me.

Oh how I would wrap and cherish your lovely toes,

So that you would feel like the most important person who ever stood so tall.

And I would make you rise up high,

But not as magnificently up, up, up-flying up high as already are.

Because you are so lovely and fine without me,

But with me…lifting you up, up, up maybe you would believe

 

Would you, could you believe in your own beauty with my strength beneath you?

 

Oh…if I were your shoes.

If I were your shoes.

 

How lucky I would be to protect and honor your feet,

The piggies that carry you in and through so many precious lives.

 

Oh…if I were your shoes.

If I were your shoes.

 

It would be the loveliest thing to be…

If I were your shoes.

 

Ballet slippers.

Fancy heels.

Wedding pumps.

Long distance runners.

Sandals for the beach.

Bedroom slippers.

 

Oh…if I were your shoes.
