I haven’t done love well

I have done sad, walked through the pain
I have done down, muddled through the strain.
Been through hate, and found it doesn’t pay
Wandered through ignore, and watched it fade to despair.
What I haven’t done well is Love.

I have done happy, sailed through the joy
I have done grace, and felt renewed
I have done hope, watched the day dawn
I have done forgiveness, walked through the Fire.
What I haven’t done well is Love.

I have done love and held the grudge,
Refused to say the words and run away from the pain.
I have done love and walked away, left hearts torn apart,
Knowing the bitterness may consume, I still did what I did.
I have done much, what I haven’t done well is Love.
