How we love

Life has taught me this 
Everyday is new 
 And if anything is true 
 All that matters when we're through 
 Is how we love 

Faced with what we lack Some things fall apart 
 From the ashes the will dream start 
 All that matters to the heart is how we love 

How we love 
How we love 

From the smallest act of kindness 
In a world that smart and hurt
In spite of our mistakes chances come again
If we lose or if we win
All that matters in the end is how we love

How we love
How we love

I will not forget your kindness when I needed it so much
Some times we forget, trying to be so strong
In this world of right and wrong
All that matters when we've gone
All that mattered all along
All we have that carries on
Is how we love

This is what God is teaching me through cancer
through pacemakers
through abdominal surgeries
babies lost
weakened immune system

Every day, the only thing that matters at the end is how we loved.
