To know

To know what love is can be hard,
To give yourself to someone,
To trust them,
To accept them,
To let them in.

To know love first we must have lost,
To know joy we must know sorry,
To know happiness we must know pain,
To know love we must understand.

To succumb to it’s will,
To let go of our fears,
To jump into the unknown,
To never rush,
To know what love is we must wait.

To risk it all,
To suffer and cry,
To fall and break,
To know these things so we can know love.

To accept it all because of all the other days,
When you are in love.
