If You Be

If you be number one, I’ll be zero,

Together we’ll make a perfect ten


If you be a drug, I’ll be an addict,

I need you all the time

If you be a book, I’ll be a writer,

I’ll engrave my vows on your skin


If you be the sea, I’ll be a fish,

Without you I can’t survive

And if you were love, I'll be a poet,

I'll praise you in poetry
