Love Defined
by Steven  Mather

Although it's better than the rest,
this word can never pass the test;
it fails in all capacity
to describe the things you mean to me.

I need a word that's soft and mellow
but painted bright with sunshine yellow
I need a word to see my pain
a word that's proud, but never vain.

I need a word that says, "I care",
that goes where no-one else would dare.
I need a word that's fair and just.
I need a word of sultry lust.

I need a word to hold me tight
to comfort me throughout each night
I need a word of fun and play
to greet me as I start each day.

I need a word to tell me plain
when I'm in error once again.
I need a word that's fearless, bold,
not slow and weak and tired and old.

I need a word of tender touch
a word that needs ME very much.
I need a word that's sparkling new
to describe the love I feel for you.
