I know about love

I know about love
I've seen its cold slobbering nose
pressed against the window
Waiting for me to come home
I know about love
I've felt it's warm soft tongue
Erasing the tears
From my cheeks
I know about love
I've heard it whimpering
In fear
Hiding
From what love should embrace
I know about love
I've seen it disappear
Before my very eyes
Unable to erase the tears from my cheeks
I know about love
I've felt it's soft fur
Slowly grow cold
We know about love
We've lost it
How can we get it back?
