Let's Talk About Love # 8 Perfect





I tried to find another word
To tell you how I feel
One not so plain and often heard
Yet genuine and real
I tried to find a word to tell
These fathoms in my soul
Vocabulary that could spell
In one word, living’s Whole

…but when I weighed your soft-half grin
And heart-parts where you let me in
The kind contentment in your sigh
Wonder that dwarfs time’s little sky
The second look and second mile
Forgiveness uttered in a smile
Of things ancient yet ever new
Life’s proof of what is good and true

…then,
When I tried to compensate
With lesser word something so great
I failed for one cannot improve
On these four letters which spell: Love
