then you know

Whenever it starts
no one can exactly tell
but
like a warm blanket
on a frosty winter’s day
you know it when you have it

It brings comfort
as steady as solid ground
it gives freedom
like a kite catching the wind
it brings laughter
as bright as jewels flung into the sky
it’s a leap of joy
that arrives with a single thought
it’s multiple levels of friendship
as secure as Fort Knox

If any moment
of any day
you know a portion of this
then you know
just how good it is
to be loved.
