Dedicated to my dear friend who is a survivor of Epilepsy and Anorexia Nervosa.


Oh.. Luv is more than a four-letter word
it is a whole lot more than what you heard!
Luvs not what you say; it's all in what you do
because anyone can say "I Love you!"
Luvs filling a paper cup with your hope and care
Luvs saying it out loud and then being there.
Luvs catching her tears from wetting his bed
Luvs helping the dejected get far far ahead.
Luvs taking a kid's words from a riddle to the clear
Luvs Teen's on graduation, headed out of ghetto fear.
Luvs spreading yellow margarine on a weak person's bread
then picking them up gently putting them to bed.
Luvs Black, White, Brown, Korean, Chinese
Luvs protecting all creatures with a mouth to feed.
Luvs working with, and being with, and rising up above
Luvs doing all of this then you call it Love.
Luvs not what you say; it's in all that you do
Now everyone shout "I Love you!" Word!

"Oh Luv" How the words pour freely from such a caring soul. Written with depth, harmony and beauty, an honor to behold. You continue to amaze me with your poignant story telling.

Thank you Carol, for making the World we live a better place for all.

In admiration, Stuart
