Poem I read at convention

I read the following poem at the 2007 convention in Washington, DC. I thought some of you might like to have a copy.

"Love: The Greatest Four-letter Word"

L - is for Listen.
To love someone is to listen unconditionally to his or her values and needs without prejudice.

O - is for Overlook.
To love someone is to overlook the flaws and faults in favor of looking for the good.

V - is for Voice.
To love someone is to voice your approval on a regular basis. There is no substitute for honest encouragement, positive strokes, and praise.

E - is for Effort.
To love someone is to make a constant effort to spend the time, to make the sacrifice, to show your interest.
