More than words

I don’t know why I love that song so much. I don’t know if it was “love at first hearing” or if I’ve simply grown to love it. I’ve listened to it countless times, yet I still don’t fully understand what it means. Maybe I just get out of it what I want…

That there are relationships that surpass words. That there are times when saying “I love you” isn’t necessary. That there are times you say it without meaning it… That there is a point when you love someone so much, that expression in words of your love becomes irrelevant, because you already understand, more than words, how that person feels. I suppose that I love that idea so much because I am a man of so few words. And I’d much rather you know in your heart that I love and miss you, than have to actually say it aloud, because so often, to me, it’s canned, unreal, and unfeeling. I’d like to think that there are relationships where you know much you mean to me, so much so, that no words are required.

    I agree with you to a point, but I think you have to say it to begin with…you can never have a relationship, let alone start one, with that “understanding.” Just my two cents.

    PS – I read your blog…obviously.

    Oops, let me clarify…”you can never have a relationship”…without talking about your emotions and achieve that level of understanding. There is point where that is possible, but for the most part (this is in the boy/girl relationships) the girl wants and needs to hear that you love her.

    Thomas Thomas Thomas…… can’t imagine how sad I would be if Cole did not tell me everyday that he loved me! It is so important to hear! I think it is safe to say Cole needs to hear it too. I will alwys know that he loves me but there is nothing like hearing him say it! But I am speaking for myself but I think it would be safe to say that everyone needs to hear that they are loved.
