If I Love You...

If I love you darling...
I’ll love you
till the cows come home,
till the bees live alone,
till the fish stop swimming
and the birds start feeding
on leaves & twigs & roots.
Till the elephants easily forget
& the zebras lose their stripes
& not a sound from the bats
that’s how much I love you,
till moths don’t get attracted to light.
Even when the sun sets
in the east
even when the world
has no need for peace.
I will love you still
with my whole being,
even when life has left us
with nothing more to dream.
I will still love you
because I do,
For love is always alive
when you know its true.
