I have had this experience 3 times. Some people have what some people call
'mystical experiences'. Sometimes you can have one of these experiences
simultaneously with someone else. It happens very suddenly & it is an
experience of eternity, infinity, no time, bliss, perfect love. It does not
last long. Sometimes one of the people thinks the other person is 'doing
it'. Sometimes there are 'gurus' or whatever who can evoke this experience
in people. For more about 'mystical experience' read St Teresa of Avila's
books & Evelyn Underhill's "Mysticism" is a good overview but too romantic.

My theatre teacher said that you could interpret as two ways. The first way
is falling in love. It's talking about how the secret, which is love, is
shared between you two, and you should enjoy it while you're alive. And how
love is just like catching a taste of heaven. The second way is faith. I
didn't have him explain that to me cause I liked the one about falling in
love, but it's also talking about your faith in God.

This poem is about the people getting in touch with the realm of the
spiritual or after life. It is also saying that we should all be thankful
that we are alive and enjoy every moment. It speaks of the fear of God and
if we were ever to see God we would be struck dead. When you have visions
and dreams you are getting a taste of heaven (a whiff of the ether).
