I’m the little boy, standing at the edge of a cliff
Screaming at the top of his lungs in ecstasy.
I’m the old man, sitting near the window
Waiting for someone to wave at him.
I’m the puppy that wags its tail, and licks your hand
Following you home.
I’m the florist, delivering flowers
Spreading smiles on everyone’s faces.
I’m the girl, sitting there all by herself
With a book in her hand, and a smile on her face.
I’m the sun that sets, bathing everyone
In it’s orange glow, as they look up in awe.
I’m the moon, that comes peeking out at night
And disappears at the light of dawn.
I’m the stars that shine, only in the darkness
In the velvety night sky.
I’m the book you love, the one
You read over and over again.
I’m the creases in the corners of your eyes,
I’m the wrinkles on your skin.
I’m the dust that settles in your shelves,
The dimples on your cheek.
I’m the rain on a sunny day, and
The rainbow that comes after it.
I’m the wide grin on a child’s face, and
I’m the feeling of falling in love.
I’m the bird, that soars high in the sky
As high as I can go.
I’m the sunshine, and the dark sky.
I’m life, and death, and everything in between.
