What What Is Love?

We marry for Love or because we are in Love, but what is Love?  Let us look to music for some answers.


“Some say Love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed.  Some say Love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed.  Some say Love, it is a hunger an endless aching need.  I say Love, it is a flower and you its only seed.” – The Rose


“Love is a burning thing and it makes a fiery ring.  Bound by wild desire I fell into a ring of fire…I went down, down, down, and the flames went higher.  And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire.” – The Ring of Fire


“My heart has wings, mmm…and I can fly.  I’ll touch every star in the sky.  So this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of mmm…so, this is Love.” – So This is Love


“This thing called love, it cries like a baby in a cradle all night.  It swings, it jives, it shakes all over like a jelly fish…I kinda like it…” – Crazy Little Thing Called Love


“L is for the way you look at me.  O is for the only one I see.  V is very, very extraordinary.  E is even more than anyone that you adore.  Love is all that I can give to you.  Love is more than just a game for two.  Two in Love can make it…Love was meant for me and you.” – L-O-V-E


“Love is like an itching in my heart, tearing it all apart.  Just an itching in my heart and baby, I can’t scratch it.  Keeps me sighing, keeps me yearning, keeps me burning, keeps me tossing, keeps me turning.” – Love is Like an Itching in My Heart


“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. – Love is a Many-Splendored Thing


“Love, love is strange.  Lot of people take it for a game.  Once you get it you’ll never wanna quit.  After you’ve had it, you’re in an awful fix.” – Love is Strange


“Love takes the tears and the pain, and it turns them into the beauty that remains.”  Love Is


“Love is real, real is Love.  Love is feeling, feeling Love.  Love is wanting to be loved.  Love is touch, touch is Love…Love is you, you and me.  Love is knowing we can be.” – Love


“There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.  Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.  Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.  It’s easy.  All you need is Love.  Love is all you need.” – All You Need is Love


Truly, love is many things.  We can go looking for love (sometimes “in all the wrong places”), but most often love finds us.  Because love is so multi-faceted, lyricists, poets, and philosophers will forever ponder and write about it. 


We are now in the coldest part of the year.  “When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long and you think that Love is only for the lucky and the strong, just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows, lies the seed that with the sun’s Love in the spring becomes the rose.” – The Rose 


May your Love bloom beautifully, grow strong, and live forever.
