Not the Word

It’s been many years
Since you first moved into my soul,
And lay your roots down to the depths within.
Now in the warmth of tenderness,
You’ve only grown to encircle
The heart of what I am.
What should I call it?
How can I tell you what I feel for you?

Because love is not the word
For this bond between our bodies and minds.
This is something greater.
More than four letters can describe.

We faced a sea of sorrow
Standing side by side.
A wave of pain washed our dreams away.
But it couldn’t pull us under
To drown in the tide.
We stood that shore to live another day.
What was that courage?
Why am I stronger when I’m next to you?

This is something more than any word can say.
Not some tired old cliché.
Don’t call it love.
It’s not enough.
