A Word (poem)

So much of life is buried in a word

Expressions lost and meaning gone awry

The whispers of our hearts it would deny

And sighs of feelings somehow seem so blurred

-

So much which makes us one it must imply

So much of what we trust to it deferred

We wander through our silence was it heard

Or was a moment’s soul condemned to die

-

So here we are with passions so entwined

With this one word to hold some treasure true

-

And to mere word our all is so consigned

And with it hopes and dreams will see us through

-

Until eternally we are combined

The word of love will somehow have to do

You say so much in a word. So poetic and true. We misunderstand and get lost in words but we also get the message from one. Thank you for sharing about love in a word, Mhatter99. Voted up and awesome.

A Word so true a word has many meanings and the wrong word can also be said very easily sometimes with no intentions.

Sometimes there are no words can be said in love. So much is Implied, with words only coaxed. Thanks Martin!

Love is one of the best words we can use and to express it in any other way seems futile. A lovely poem and thank you.

One can also show love through simple gestures, specifically tailor made.
