I Am I am the light and the dark I am life and death I am hope when there is no hope I am solitude and a great crowd I am joy and sorrow I am a friendly word and look I am a kiss and a touch I am first love and love after many years I am the wind that touches your face I am the thunder and the lightning I am the bird in the sky and the fish in the sea I am spring summer autumn winter I am the sun on a cloudy day I am the seas and the rivers I am the land and the creatures I am the beginning and the end
