I Think I Know

I think I know enough of love
To know that it can break your heart
I think I know enough of wealth
To know what it can tear apart

I think I know enough of friendship
To embrace it every time
I think I know enough of pain
To know I'll make it through this time

I know the wonders of the earth
And I consume the most I can
I think I know enough of honor
To respect my fellow man

I think I know what's in my heart
And in my mind and in my soul
I think I know myself enough
To recognize what I don't know

Elizabeth

I see we share a name, Elizabeth. One day I hope to know this...good job.

Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

And I know you well enough
to know that I don't doubt it.
Another great one, Elizabeth.

I loved this.

Lizz,
We feel we know a lot of things
For we drink from a lot of springs.
But knowing is a latitude
Expression with an attitude.
You are a wonderful writer and i always enjoy your poems.
