How Do I Know What a Simile Looks Like

A simile is a type of figurative language, in which you are comparing two different things, using words such as like or as.  Examples -

2. When he lifted me up in his arms I felt I had left all my troubles on the floor beneath me like            gigantic concrete shoes.

3. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
