When speaking of love,
and how often we do,
what exactly do we mean?
There are so many kinds of emotions
that hide themselves in that word...
Even hate hides there in a tone of voice,
a turn of mouth, and so it would seem
it’s only a word, just a word… Love.
But when they see each other,
and their hearts give a lurch,
and they smile without knowing it,
opening like flowers,
turning to each other
like blossoms to the sun,
they forget it’s only a word, just a word…
In that moment it's their lives … and they love.
