Love Is

Love is not a word,
Shaped by tongue and voice,
Breathed into a song, and lost
Ere it finds a place to nest.

Love is singing in the rain.
Love is suff'ring somone's pain.
Love's a caring, sharing heart, -
Laughing, crying, trusting heart.
Love's a touch, a soft caress.
Love is tenderness.

Love is not a word.
Breathed into song and lost.
Love, in giving self to Love,
Finds its nesting place.
