Knowing

Knowing

If you can smile as a child does
love as a mother does,

If you can understand a tear,
feel a wrinkle, a thorn,

If you can flow as a river,
stand like a mountain,

If you can smell the earth,
drink the raindrop, reflect the sun,

If you can walk with,
and live your moments together

yes, I know you.

If you know the brightness of a flower’s colour,
wonder of a bloom,

the rhythm of a tone
purpose of a bird’s song,

If you know the fullness of your empty moments,
space your weaknesses open,

The richness in silence,
vibrant stillness,

If you know the sparkle in the eyes,
Conversation, a heart makes

You know me.
