Envious

I am envious of the wind
That caresses your face
Tussles your hair
Whispers in your ear

I am envious of the sun
That kisses your nose
Shines around you
Witnesses your smile

I am envious of the earth
That communes with your sole
Bears your weight
Feels your body

I am envious of the rain
That pours over your head
Trickles down your neck
Vaporizes with your ember

I am envious of the cloud
That plays above you
Foreshadows your gloom
Laughs with you silly

I am envious of the flower
That meets your gaze
Awaits your praises
Blooms at your whim

I am envious of the fire
That glistens from afar
Dances in the night
Feeds your hunger

I am envious of the moon
That peeps through your window
Sneaks in the dark
Plays with your shadow

I am envious of the wind
Sun, earth, rain
Cloud, flower, fire
And the moon

But I am most envious of HER
For she is your everything
And to you
I am nothing
