Bagels and Cream Cheese

You are the bagel.
And Iím the cream cheese.
Together, weíre delicious.

You and I are perfect.
And we complement each other well.

Youíre the crunchy bite,
And Iím the creamy filling.
One bite is like a ticket to heaven.

Youíre the desired circle,
And I try to follow.
Before you know it, weíre the perfect match.

Youíre warm to the touch,
That I could hold you all day.
But without me, you would be plain.

But Iím the flavor,
That you want.
The only one for you.

I was made for you.
And you were made for me.
Therefore, we were meant to be.

So now, every time I eat breakfast,
And I see a bagel in front of me,
I smile because I know that I will always be your filling.
