Loving You

Loving you is watching
The sun dance on water
Like endless acres of diamonds
On a golden summer morning.

Loving you is walking
Through a candlelit cathedral
In silent prayer.

Loving you is the feel
Of a gentle breeze, and
The cool green grass
Beneath my feet.

Loving you is being surrounded
By the quiet beauty
Of great works of art.

Loving you is the sound
Of a waterfall,
Or the sight of a rainbow.

Loving you is running through
Bright hillsides of autumn, and
Breathing in their earthy scents.

Loving you is the joy
In the eyes of a child
On their birthday.

Loving you is standing
In the middle of a sun shower,
Arms outstretched.

Loving you is awakening
To the first snow of winter,
And the crisp clean air
Of early dawn.

Loving you is the returning
Of birds
And the first buds of spring.

Loving you
Is the memory
Of home.

    " Loving you is standing; In the middle of a sun shower, Arms outstretched." A powerful image!
    I like the 4 line to 3 line changing structure.
