The Editor Speaks: A love blog day

It is St Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. On this day we think strongly of our partner, wife, husband, lover, mother, father and even our pets. Love on this day is often an interpersonal attraction, desire, romance and sexual although the latter is often mistaken as lust.

The subject of love is written, talked about and love features in more movies, stage plays and television sitcoms, dramas, etc than any other subject. Interestingly, the word that is second to love is hate.

When one mentions the singer/songwriter name, Chris De Burgh, one immediately thinks of “Lady in Red”. One of the best songs ever written for St. Valentine’s Day with De Burgh’s whispered words at the end of the song “I love you.” He wrote another word, even better. Not as romantic and definitely not as well known and sadly not a big hit. The title, though, says it all, “The Words ‘I Love You’”.  The song starts with conflict between a father and a son saying it’s the simple things that come between them. When they try to talk “the knives are out” before they even begin. That applies to all of us. When I read the blogs I cannot remember one that even uses the word “love” unless it’s to remember the passing of a loved one. Wouldn’t it be nice if today we could remember what today is and go one step further beyond the romantic ‘love’? De Burgh talks about the hearts that have been broken “by the lies of history” and “we must show respect for all the rest, and what a man believes”. He mentions “the one who died upon the cross” and says “he is the one for me” and finishes the verse: “And he said ‘Come with me and you will see the light that shines for eternity, be strong and learn to say the words I love you.’”

Wouldn’t it be nice if today were free of any crime? No gang wars. No brandishing of weapons.

Even easier. A love blog day. McKeeva, Alden and Ezzard, “we love you.”

“And this endless road that we are on just keeps on going round, But there’s one destination that always is here to be found; “So come with me, and you will see the light that shines for eternity, Be strong and learn to say the words “I love you,”

“Be strong and learn to say the words “I love you,” the words ‘I love you,’ the words ‘I love you,’ the words ‘I love you.’”
