I didn't know that I loved love


by Emma Bjerk




I didn't know that I loved love


don't get me wrong I knew about it


I knew my parents "loved" me


but there's something more about it


I use to never worry if he'd always be around


but then he became distant


and I couldn't seem to make a sound


I began to think seriously


about how it would feel to loose him


until I stopped and realized


I simply couldn't do it


I need to feel him there


to help me get through it


no I guess I never thought


and I never knew I loved love
