I Don’t Know What Love Is

I Don’t Know What Love Is

When I was young
I never thought
About what love was:
I didn’t need
To question.

Love was a word
I never uttered.
The emotional
Were too strong.

It was always
A thing I knew
Without words:
Beyond friendship
As one soul.

To feel that I
And another
Were so entwined,
That nothing could
Break that bond.

But now you say
I never knew
What love was.
I know it by
The empty space.
