    If my eyes open with the morning sun
    I am loving you

    If I can smile at the sight of children playing
    I am loving you

    If I can hear the birds of spring
    sing their mating song
    under the cover of ten foot evergreens
    I am loving you

    If my hands can touch a flower
    and not disturb its awesome delicacy
    I am loving you

    If I am breathing
    I am loving you

    BE

    Heartbeat,

    May I say with all seriousness (gosh...is dat a werd?) that this poem touched my heart. I really enjoyed the reading of these lines. This is my favorite...love expressed in purity.
