It’s hard enough to say “I love you”
Harder to think of why we love a person
Harder still to have to explain it
It’s magical when someone tells us they love us
It gives the sense that the certain person has chosen us out of many to express this distinct feeling
It makes us feel special
Don’t deny it, it does.
But when we say we love someone, do we know why?
Have you thought about it?
Is “I love you” the phrase we say just to make the receiving party feel comfortable?
Is it a phrase we say just to give ourselves a reason to stay?
Or is it a phrase we come to say out of habit?
Do we have reasons why we love?
Do we know the reasons why?
For those of us who wait for a certain realization or occurrence before we say those 3 words, do we really know what we are waiting for?
And for those of us who just blurt out the words, what pushes us?
Should there be a reason why we love?
Does it make it “more real” when we have a reason?
Or does it in fact, suggest an ingenuity of the expression when we have to think of reasons why?
There’s this song by Major – Why I love you
I thought it would introduce me to one of the deeper reasons why people love
But it still left me wondering
The chorus goes – This is why I love you, ooh this is why I love you, because you love meee, you love meeee…. 🙂 🙂
It doesn’t give me the answer I’m looking for
It’s still a sweet song
He goes on to say other sweet little things like “Every moment that you smile chases all the pain away” – you know these things
I absolutely love it though.
I’m sucker for love – but even I am not completely sure what love is
Not even sure I’ve felt it before
Every time someone says the phrase “I love you” … my default response is why?
What made you switch from just liking to loving me
Something had to drive that shift
What was it? What is it?
I guess love is undefinable
Maybe it’s meant to be that way
This Post reminds me of an older one – What is Love?
