I am Water

I am water.

 

People can see their reflections in me.

 

Sometimes they throw stones into me just to see how I will ripple.

 

I am water that joins the never ending stream.

 

I am water that people look in and dream.

 

There is a bench near by where I pass, and I often see couples beginning their courtship, or proposing to one another, or just enjoying the sound that I am making.

 

Because I am water I do not break, and unlike other living things, I do not die.

 

I keep on living.

 

People wonder where I lead with the mixture of me and oxygen-I make people breathe.

 

I am water that does not cease.

 

Even when there’s an object like a log in front of me.

 

I just go over effortlessly.

 

I am water where fish can swim.

 

In the end I am water where life begins.
