Me, myself and I

I am a dreamer, an artist, and a believer
I imagine, create, and discover
I am a leader, I am a follower
I am who I am, I am the only I.

Most of the time I believe in me

But occasionally I lose faith in me
Sometimes thunderstorms frighten me
But somehow when you’re with me the fear doesn’t stay.
Only you can make me laugh on cloudy days
Your voice, a sweet melody to me, takes me breathe away.

My dreams give me hope

My faith keeps me alive
My life is blessed
My heart is open
Music and art are my passion
Love keeps my heart beating

My life is mine to live

My wings are mine to fly
The blank canvases are mine to paint
The words on this page are truly mine
The stars above are mine to wish
Wherever you are, your heart is beating with mine

I appreciate myself, and all that is mine
I believe in myself and deserve what I call is mine
Sometimes I test myself
Every now and then I surprise myself
I believe in myself
I love being myself

 Love it allot. You kinda say, I love me and I love you and we can be apart but still be one kinda a thing. :) Like the line about black canvas, like your painting away evil or something. Really great way to go.
