I, The Air
Poem By Delwin Chowhan
I the air,
Life I give,
Breathe to live.
I the air, so silent so calm,
Play with leaves and trees
Am no harm.
I move along with my best friends,
Sometimes dust, sometimes sand
Across oceans, over lands.
Sometimes clapped between human hands.
I the air Help love grow
Deliver scent that your loved one knows
I the air was among first creation
An unknown source, an unseen attraction
You may be lost, in your thoughts
But I exist around your imagination.
I the air when lonely sing
Move through mountain, push the swing
In through windows and thresholds.
A sigh of relief I often bring.
I the air maintain balance
Am just air, am no substance
In royal weddings I am fragrance
I the air am no expense.
One thing that I often regret,
I the air don’t bring much smile,
Something that you will never forget,
Was when I dried that tear for a while?
I the air am your friend,
Will try to stay till the end.
When blend with black that I call smoke
I the air could possibly choke,
I am best when I am pure,
You live long and that’s for sure.
I the air move through fields
Besides hills and wind mills
I work from dusk till dawn
Life will repent if I am gone.
