You must have heard

Kevin Anderson 1965 (Ill)

What? It appears you haven't heard
Love is a noun or an action verb
Love is the envy of hate
Love can be the subject of any debate

Love is the reason for living
Love mixed with caring and sharing is the season for giving
Love acts without envy
Love plays games with the minds and hearts of many

Love you must have heard
Love is so resounding not marred or absurd
Love you must have heard
God is love, the Almighty gives meaning to the word

I joined the United States Air Force in 1986, fully retired in 2016, 30 years of honorable service and of making life do what it does so I can do what I do when I do what I do communicating my thoughts or a few. more…
