If you were a big bold rainbow I'd be your pot of gold. You would shine up in the sky so high So brightly and so bold. You would follow a summer storm So dreary and so dark, With bright majestic colors That calls out to even the smallest meadowlark. If you were an ocean With giant waves crashing upon the land I'd be with you always In every simple grain of sand. And if you were a river Running frantically to the sea I'd run along beside you Through the tangles of the trees. What if you were that tree Growing tall straight and true I'd grow right there with you To help guide you to the blue. And what if you were a puppy So bouncy and so new I'd be your best friends always We would run and play and that's what we'd do. But you're none of those things Yet all of them, too So I can be with you always And tell them often, I love you. Tasha Budlong Funeral Services will be held on Monday, April 17, 2006 at 12:00 p.m. at McGee Memorial Chapel with John Monroe-Castle officiating.
