I am born everyday, and always awake

Some times I am plenty, and some times none

I don't have feet and I travel light

People, few happy, are on me

And day by day, they want me more

To put the load they don't want to carry

I can't see you as I have no eyes

But cry I do, day or night

For, I am, you see loud

Is it:

Clouds

I am born everyday, and always awake.

Everyday with sunrise the sky is born and almost always there are clouds in it. But, clouds are around always, and always moving.

Some times I am plenty, and some times none.

Sometimes there are lots of clouds, sometimes few.

I don't have feet and I travel light.

Clouds have no feet, but are "fluffy and light."

People, few happy, are on me.

Happy people are sometimes said to be on "cloud" 9. Other times we hear about "storm clouds" when people are mad.

And day by day, they want me more.

Depending on the season, people often want clouds. In the winter for snow and the other activities. In summer for shade.

To put the load they don't want to carry.

Here I'm a little short. Maybe, we wish our burdens were light as a cloud? From the OP, refers to storing data on the cloud.

I can't see you as I have no eyes.

Clouds have no eyes, and technically can't see.

But cry I do, day or night.

Rain comes day or night.

For, I am, you see loud.

Lightning in the sky can be very loud. Or (thanks to Rand for pointing this out), see loud, "c" loud, cloud.

    $\begingroup$ Nice answer! Most of your explanations seem to fit "clouds" better than "the sky" though. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Apr 3 '15 at 22:35

    $\begingroup$ Look at the last line!! See loud. You've got it. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Apr 3 '15 at 22:41

    $\begingroup$ Haha. Very nice. I've used "see" enough times you'd think I'd "c" that. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd Apr 3 '15 at 22:43

    $\begingroup$ @AggieKidd It's the correct answer! Yes, "See Loud" = "Cloud" was the clue I was indicating. In these lines, "And day by day, they want me more. To put the load they don't want to carry.", I was indicating the Cloud that people want to store their data on. But yes, you got it! $\endgroup$ – ssc Apr 3 '15 at 23:06

    $\begingroup$ Thanks to Rand for directing me towards cloud and away from sky. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd Apr 3 '15 at 23:09

Maybe it's

MONEY.

I am born everyday, and awake always

Money is always being printed, and ATM cash machines are always 'awake' and ready to be used.

Some times, I am plenty, and some times none

Some people have plenty of money, and some have none.

I don't have feet, and I travel light

Money has no feet, and it's quite light for being so valuable: you can fit a million pounds/dollars/euros in a suitcase (or so I've heard).

People, few happy, are on me

Coins and notes often bear pictures of people's faces.

And day by day, they want me more

People always want more money.

To put the load, they don't want to carry

It's lighter and easier to handle than the material goods it 'represents'.

Since I can't see you as I have no eyes

Indeed.

And cry I do, day or night

For, I am, you see loud

Not sure about these lines.

  • $\begingroup$ This is a very good answer, but not what I was looking for. If I would not have put the last two lines, your answer would have been perfect. But the last two lines hold a major clue. $\endgroup$ – ssc Apr 3 '15 at 21:15
