I Am........ Poem by Valerie Dohren

I Am........

Rating: 5.0

I am the wind that blows in your hair
I am the joy in the smile that you wear

I am the grass that cushions your feet
I am the rose with her perfume so sweet

I am the rainbow spanning the skies
I am the teardrops that fall from your eyes

I am your candle with flickering flame
I am the language that speaks out your name

I am the birdsong high in the trees
I am the snowflakes that float in the breeze

I am the ripples you see in the streams
I am the essence of each of your dreams

I am the sound of rustling leaves
I am the thread that each silkworm weaves

I am the fire that burns in your soul
I am the shadow o`er mountains to roll

I am the blood that runs through your veins
I am the bright moon that waxes and wanes

I am the sun that shines in the sky
I am the breath exhaled in your sigh

I am the land and I am the sea
I am all that you want me to be

I am your soul........ I am not me

Shockingly elegant in such simple form! So reminiscent of some of my favorite poets: Plath, Sexton, and even Mary Frye. Valerie, you are amazingly talented...
