Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations
It means full acceptance, even celebration of another's personhood
by Sheena Lorene Teel

When tears never fall, and birds never fly
Winter never ends, and children never cry

When the sun never shines, and the moon never glows
When darkness is too bright, and the river never flows

When the nights are not dark, and the days are not light
When forever does finally end, and the eyes have no sight

When confusion is so clear, and voices can't be heard
The sunset never fades, and no one says a word

When ears cannot hear, and the grass never grows
When silence is too loud, and the genius never knows

When strength doesn't strengthen, and flowers never bloom
When hearts can't be broken, and eternity is too soon

When everything means nothing, and real just isn't real
When God rests a little while, and death never kills

When the wind never blows, and the rain is never wet
When thunder can't be heard, and the sun refuses to set

When a dreamer cannot dream, and the obvious can't be found
When the ocean is not deep, and the earth is not round

When angels don't protect, and a fact is not true
When life can't be lived, and the sky is not blue

When the truth is a lie, and the fake becomes so real
The clock shows no time, and wounds never heal

When enjoyment isn't fun, and bells cannot ring
When a race cannot be won, and a singer cannot sing

When pain does not hurt, and enemies never fight
When rainbows have no color, and something wrong seems so right

When all these things finally happen, when they finally come true
That's when I, with no doubt, will stop loving you
