What Love Really Means

This song is in my head today. I celebrated my birthday yesterday.

32 years of awesome!

I don’t feel old… until I look around and see most people my age are already married with children. I try to remember that I’m taking my time because I want a love that will last, a love that isn’t just a feeling but a VERB, something that you do every day, something you look forward to, something that will last forever. More importantly, I remind myself that I have the love of Christ and that is what is most important.

No matter what happens here on Earth I know that I will always be loved by my heavenly Father for now into eternity.

He cries in the corner where nobody sees
He’s the kid with the story no one would believe
He prays every night, “Dear God won’t you please…
Could you send someone here who will love me?” 

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me
‘Cause nobody has shown me what loveWhat love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She’s the woman whose husband has run away
She’ll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner
Then he would’ve stayed
And she says…

Who will love me for me?
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me?
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love, What love really means

He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone
He’s a man in a cell who regrets what he’s done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
“Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home”

Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
And it said
“I know you’ve murdered and I know you’ve lied
I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you’ll listen, I’ll tell you that I…”

I will love you for you
Not for what you have done or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew
