I'm not sure of the first stanza because it talks about rising above 'love' in the last two lines (and I don't think I would want to do that...) Regardless, that has nothing to do with how I will rate this poem -- that is content, not technical merit, and I doubt you meant it the way I'm reading it.
Good luck in the contest!

Thank you kindly for your review, comments and best wishes they are greatly appreciated.
I like how you define love - A gift, freely given - we call Love. Love sometimes is the alpha and omega in starting something noble and pure in this world. Love can start and bless a baby life, in other words love is the universal cure for peace.
