In order to know love

In order to know love
I must listen for the heart beat
Inhale deeply
And
Exhale

In order to know love
I must know loss
The joy of life
And
Death

In order to know love
I must know loneliness
The comfort of a hug
And
Wanting

In order to know love
I must know trust
Complete surrender
And
Betrayal

In order to know love
I must know myself
All the world around
And
You

In order to know love
I must know arid deserts
All the oceans
And
The stars

In order to know love
I must breathe it in
Breathe it out
And
Feel it.

In order to know love
We must feel love
Be love
And
Love
