Just A Word

Before, it was just a word
That I had often heard;
It didn't mean a thing,
Nor did it make me sing;

I never felt funny inside,
Or had feelings to hide;
One word with four letters -
I didn't know any better!

But then, there was you!
At first, I didn't know what to do.
You showed me the way,
You taught me what to say;

Now it's more than just a word -
It's the sweetest I've heard!
You and the word I think of -
You and just the word - love!

April 6, 1968
