Have you never watched the red tailed hawk
waltzing to an unwritten melody
on midday currents never seen.
Have you never felt the mists of dawn
in the twilight on a small flowing stream
before the day hides them away.
Or pondered as the wildflowers bloom
as the golden warming sun reaches high
bathing them with the gift of life.
Or listened to an infants laughter
as he discovers his toes the first time
knowing they are his, but not why.
Have you never felt the gift of love
from that one special person you dreamed of
and knew what life was meant to be.
Then my love you've not begun to live
or have hidden yourself too far away
from the feelings I feel today.
