This Little Word

This little word so ardently adored,
Eloquence and passion lavishly explored;
Through poets’ titillating declarations
And lovers’ heartfelt conversations
By yearning hearts that so implore
This little word, that makes heavy hearts soar.

This little word so ardently adored
Beauty embodied and poise galore;
Through painters’ rich imagination
And actors’ vivid animations
By broken hearts that so implore
This little word to heart and soul restore.

This little word so ardently adored
A notion by man that cannot be ignored
Despite its rich and heavy history
Yet it’s hidden in a veil of mystery
This little word, whatever its allure
Use with caution for meaning to endure.

This little word so ardently adored
Through poets’ lavish dedications
And lovers’ heartfelt declarations
This little word that lonely hearts implore
Use with caution for meaning to endure
