A Many Splendored Thing...

As you know, I've commented on recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, about writing stuff that I wanted to post just after Valentine's Day.  Well, I'm finally doing this!

Hopefully, you enjoyed the one day of the year where love is celebrated around the world.

Hopefully, you had someone to celebrate this special love day, with.

Several Facebook (FB) friends of mine wished me Happy Valentine's Day, just as I did you.  It's always nice to be remembered by those you care for and about.

After all, love is special.

Oh, I know, when you love someone, you should celebrate the love you share, each and every day of your life.  And, those who actually have someone to love, do this. 

While others, can only dream.

A song came to mind, as the day progressed.  It was an oldie, but goodie, entitled Love Is A Many Splendored Thing.  Many have recorded this song, but here is a link to Andy Williams' version:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuBGHWAo2tw  and here are the lyrics:

Love Is A Many Splendored Thing

Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose
That only grows in the early spring
Love is nature's way of giving
A reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king


Once on a high and windy hill
In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed
And the world stood still
Then your fingers touched
My silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's
A many splendored thing


Once on a high and windy hill
In the morning mist
Two lovers kissed
And the world stood still
Then your fingers touched
My silent heart and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love's
A many splendored thing


On a day like Valentine's Day, how can anyone who lives in today's world not think of human love? 

One FB friend in particular, chatted with me and told me that he is lonely.  I let him know I understood and agreed with him, that life can be quite lonely.  After all, when you are alone and have no one to love or be loved by, this world is a lonely place.

That's why, I no longer look to anyone or anything in this world, for love and/or happiness.

God is the most important person in my life.  As I wrote about in the poem I wrote and published in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, there is no love that can compare.

I have more that I would like to say about this, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.


Until next time...
