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
