I'm sweet, juicy, cooling, and moist,
Relaxing nerves and tissue.
I help you when you're not content
In fact, I like to kiss you!
I allay severe nausea --
This is one of my great gifts,
Especially in pregnancy --
Use my flowers, leaves, or pits.
I am such a beautiful tree,
And I support your liver.
My fuzzy fruit's round and luscious;
Your life flows like a river.
