    I don't claim to know what love is.
    I only know that when I arise
    the sun enwraps me,
    illuminating my eyes
    so that I can see
    the beauty of you
    smiling at me
    I don't claim to know what love is.
    But as I breath the crisp morning air
    I also inhale the sweet essence of you
    although miles away, it's like you're there
    right next to me
    your aroma is everywhere
    permeating me.
    I don't claim to know what love is.
    although when earthly winged chorus
    play their daybreak melody
    I start to sing spontaneously,
    harmoniously, and aria of we,
    of you
    and me
    together in rhapsody.
    I don't claim to know what love is.
    It just....is.

    Sister you put this down....."Correct"... :toast:

    I loved so many parts of this...from the permeation..to the aria...sing/song
    in the way you transitioned the rhythm in the latter stanza.

    Bluewater, when I started typing in the previous response, your post wasn't there yet....thankyou for "getting" that good feeling I was trying to convey.
    Angelicsage, humbling me once again. Nice to know you appreciated this from the permeation to the alteration in lyrical rhythm...much thanks.
