I Think I'm in Love.

I think I'm in love.

With trees that shed leaves in fall
That change with the times
That die in winter before they are reborn in spring

With green grass
Which moves wherever the winds of circumstance take them

With birds
Who fill the air with their chirping!
Who make me listen to them talk endlessly!!

With squirrels
Who stretch lazily on warm winter afternoons

I think I'm in love

With tall buildings and tiny cottages
With the miracles of the human brain that create them

I think I'm in love

With the mighty ocean
That takes in everything and everyone, silently, without judgement, without criticism

With rivers, pools, and puddles
That happily scurry in a hurry
To the same ephemeral end every single day.

I think I'm in love

With the sun and the moon and stars
And the northern lights
Who give away all they have
Without asking for anything in return

I think I'm in love

With those who love me and with those who loved me
With those who hate me and with those who hated me
With those who smile, laugh, and cry with me every day

I think I'm in love with being alive.

I think I'm in love with life
And everything it does to make me feel alive

I think I'm in love with death
With all the peace that would come after that

Maybe I'm in love with love?
