My Favorite Foods

I can eat my favorite breakfast alone...

eggs cooked the way I’ve loved them all my life...

but breakfast always tastes a little better

when I eat...next to my wife.

 

I can eat my favorite lunch alone...

A Philly Cheesesteak that never ends...

but lunch always tastes a little better

when I’m eating it...with friends.

 

I can eat my favorite dinner alone...

A steak and potato cooked just for me...

but dinner always tastes a little better

when I eat...with my family.

 

I can eat cake on my birthday alone...

I can sing happy birthday...sing my name...

but without people gathered ‘round me

that cake wouldn’t taste the same.

 

Yes, I can eat food by myself

and I know that I will thrive

but when I eat with friends and family

I know that I’m alive.

 

I once thought my taste buds decided my favorite foods

but perhaps that’s just a myth...

Perhaps what makes them my favorite foods....

 

is who I eat them with.
