Read Poem: LOVE, by Peter F. Pike

The opposite of courage maybe fear

but the true opposite of fear is love.

Bravery is something we all hold dear;

such a precious gift from heaven above.

But what of love? That emotion splendid!

Where hatred has festered; Love brings healing

as broken relationships are mended.

Isn’t Love the highest-soaring feeling?

Love can truly cure the broken-hearted;

all the fallen, Love gently raises up.

It just takes kindness to get Love started:

that grateful sip of water from a cup.

Love—the highest of all our emotions

Love—the deepest of all our devotions
