For This Love

For This Love

for this love
i must pay with all of life
everything i’ve learnt
everything i own
sell it for a pittance
and start over again

every moment, again
to taste continually
the anguish of separation

all i want is You
all You give
is Your absence

and i love You
not despite
but for this pain
that promises awakening
to the purpose of existence
