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.

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! :-)

You've penned a wonderful acrostic, Greg. Sure reads like a winner to me!
