there are so many...

He cries in the corner where nobody sees
He's the kid with the story no one would believe
He prays every night, "Dear God won't you please...
Could you send someone here who will love me?"

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me
'Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She's the woman whose husband has run away
She'll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner
Then he would've stayed
And she says...

Who will love me for me?
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me?
'Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means

He's waiting to die as he sits all alone
He's a man in a cell who regrets what he's done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
"Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home"

Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
And it said
"I know you've murdered and I know you've lied
I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you'll listen, I'll tell you that I..."

I will love you for you
Not for what you have done or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew

Love Me

i have caught this song several times on the radio, and every time it leaves me with tears streaming down my face.  and i don't exactly know what it is...

except for that there are so many people hurting.  there are so many people in pain.  there are so many people looking for love, desiring love, and so many who are unable to find it.

the thing that i have in abundance.  the thing i could so easily give to others.  love.  it seems so simple.

from the day i was born i was blanketed in love.  i had parents who had waited for me, who held me and kissed me and provided for me.  they told me everyday that i was beautiful and that i could be whoever i wanted to be.  i had a brother, who pestered me and made fun of me.  but at any given moment of any day would stand up for me to others.  he stood next to me on the day i was married.  i had cousins, and aunts and uncles who loved to spend time with me,who would do anything for me.  i had friends who didn't care that i was a little odd and louder than most.  i had friends who loved me for me.  i met a boy.  a boy who loved others.  a boy that loved me.  he chose me above all the other girls, and he chooses still to love me everyday, even though i am cranky and my ass grows a little more everyday.  and we love.  and one day we brought a baby into this world, and he is lavished with possibly even more love than i.  and even if i did not have all that love... i would have still had a God, who created me, who died for me so that i may live.  who loved me just as i was. 

and it breaks my heart that not everyone can be covered in the same kind of love as me.  it breaks my heart that so many search yet do not find.

why should i be lavished in love, when there are so many coveting it for themselves?

    it's because you are the embodiment of love...

    you are most deserving!

    Such a beautiful Post also should write a book like I encourage Holly to do.

    I think someone who is surrounded by love is able to give it because you have lived are so fortunate and yes, deserving.

    this was a lovely post to read.
