I read once that to learn to live

We must uncoil ourselves from the bindings

Round her heart

We must take care with this fragile thing

As we test its new strengths

And learn from the outside

As we tear the pages from beloved books

And attach them to our own skin

To learn to love is the source of healing

For men and nations

When we are to know one another

Truthfully and without pain

We will see sunshine through all the rain.
