How do you spell love?

Last night I was on the couch
Just watching the TV
When in burst my little girl
Running straight to me

"Daddy did I spell this right?"
Excitement in her voice
So I said "I'll take a look"
There would be no choice

As I looked at the paper
To read her little note
The word "Luve" was scribbled there
That was all she wrote

"Why did you spell love this way?
Why did you choose a 'u'?"
I then waited for responce
To see what she'd do

Without pause she turned and said
"I spelled it with 'u'
Cause when I think about love
I think about you"

As warm feelings grew inside
And tears blinded my sight
I then answered her question
"Yes you spelled it right"
