You know that feeling you get,
when you gaze at your lover standing at the window on a softly lit evening,
or as they first awake,
their eyes still soft and dreamy from the night,
your heart expands so much that it nearly aches
and you think to yourself “Oh how I wish you’d know,
just how beautiful you are”.
is a song yearning to be sung.
A song is a way to say the unsayable, to express what so often feels too big to be expressed.
It is a way to reflect back, to celebrate, and to deeply witness the beauty of another,
and the beauty of the love between you two.
Expressed in a song,
the truth has a way of being heard,
truly heard on deeper levels than words alone ever seem to reach.
Something in the way in which truthful words marry melody can bypass judgements, rational objections, and “sure-you-say-that-buts” and flow right into where they belong
– the softness of the heart.
This is a gift he or she will never forget.
This is a gift that both of you can always come back to,
a gift that will bring you back, again and again,
just how precious this love of yours truly is.
