Essence Of Life

I hold the essence of life,
Throughout my wandering body.
My presence is sought after,
Cherished by everybody.

I can cross large distances,
I can travel far and wide.
No hindrance is too large,
With my trusty cycle by my side.

I am the key to your life,
I will elegantly bring joy.
But if turned the wrong way,
I can elegantly destroy.

I am as silent as fear,
As gentle as love,
Yet I can also be as fierce,
As the raging storms above.

I can nurse somebody back to health,
Make them as right as rain.
I can also seize a person's life,
Make sure they never see light again.

The lack of my presence,
Invites grief and distress.
But abundance of my company,
Can also depress.

I hold the very essence of life,
Mother Nature's very own daughter.
I've had many names throughout my life,
But you can call me water...
