And actors’ vivid animations
This little word that lonely hearts implore
Use with caution for meaning to endure

Through poets’ titillating declaration
And lovers’ heartfelt conversations

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
