Love is a four letter word,
A word that makes people act absurd,
A thing that we want,
A thing that we need,
A thing we always take with greed.

Love, that four letter word,
I cry out, but go unheard,
The thing I want most,
The word we search for, a ghost.

Love is a four letter word,
A word that causes hurt,
A word that causes pain,
A word searched for in vain.

Love, the four letter word,
You cannot grasp or hold,
A thing that may never be,
But you'll find it in Him who is in me.

Love, not just a four letter word,
It is something we all search for.

Thank you for the encouragement! I posted one yesterday due to this and for hurricane Sandy people. I've been a bit off lately. This helped. Thanks :)

Lovely poem Savannah! Love how you've described love as a four letter word and then concluded that it is much more than just a four letter word. That in essence it is everything we yearn for. Nice! Very nice!
