I Need You Like a Donut Needs a Hole

by Barry Louis Polisar

I Need You Like a donut needs a hole,
Like pianos need fingers, heart, and soul.
We go together like peanuts in a shell,
I'm gonna hold you in my arms like water in a well.

I love you like flowers love the sun,
Like birds love to fly and kids like to run,
Like trees love leaves and leaves turn brown,
Like rabbits in the meadow like to hop around.

When we are together, side by side
It's like a roller coaster and a carousel ride.
The clouds all lift and sing with the trees,
The oak leaves dance along with the breeze.
