L ove is the one force transcending all others, O pens those hearts that adversity smothers, V irtuous, to vanquish all hate, fear and doubt, E nduring, immortal, and ALL ... life's ... about. ~ 2nd Place ~ in the "A Four Line Poem On What Is Love" Poetry Contest, Faraz Ajmal, Judge & Sponsor. (Eleven syllables per line, as per HowManySyllables.com)

A beautiful tribute to the sentiment that is the only feeling saving the universe, the one uniting force we can all count on always.

Thank you so much, Faraz, I greatly appreciate the placement. Actually, Einstein called life WITHOUT love a "void", and I personally believe, (from his many writings on the subject), that he felt it as the one force that can transcend time. Blessings, Friend! :-)
