You

 

 

You are my coat,

protecting me from the rain

 

You are my gloves,

warming my hands

 

You are my shoes,

anchoring my feet on the pavement

 

you are my glasses,

stopping me walking into dustbins

 

You are my jumper,

lying close to my heart

 

You are my belt,

keeping my trousers up.
