I Am



I am a rose petal
wind blown

I am a child

I am daydreams in the night

I am a cloud that looks
like something

I am a flat sheet of aluminum
on the side of your house

I am rain and hail

I am fire
after the last coal dies

I am a cat
or maybe a lion
afraid

I am beside you sometimes

I am behind you always

I am a word that
often says what you mean

I am a face in the mirror

I am nothing more
