People tell me there is
A word for everything.
The stuff that makes you alive
A journey we can only experience once.
God and faith
A belief in an idea higher than us.
There is a word for everything.
But how do you define love?
It is something that can not quite be put
It must be felt within the heart.
It is a bond between two people
Who meet for the first time
And make a promise
That lasts a lifetime.
It is a tiny four letter word
And yet it lights up our universe.
It is a word
With no definition,
And no end.
