if you do not learn to love
how empty your moon by night
how bleak your sun by day
how filled you are with nothingness
if you do not learn to love

if you do not learn to love
how paranoid your heart
only a puddle by the acid of ignorance
how putrid and sad
if you do not learn to love

learn to love
not for romance
but to fill your cup anew every day
with the possibility that you are
in touch with the you
greater than yourself

learning to love
to reach higher that high
to touch the universe that is you
