I put this vid up on my FaceBook page today for Rob, my sweetly amazing husband.
It’s always been a favorite Valentine’s tune. Even before I met him.
But, I’d never seen the vid before and was a bit surprised by the headstone and rose at the end. However, it actually clarified something … for me anyway … because though now this song says “Rob” to me … once … it applied to Will, my late husband, and before him it was just a wish … attached to wind in hopes that one day the song would remind me of someone who loved me as much as I loved him.
The same song but three different me’s. Three very different times of my life. But still me at the core and sentiment of the song never changes even though I have and life, of course, has as well.
And to me, this is a reminder that living/loving in the moment is what truly matters.
Sure I remember moments past/lost but I don’t live. Now is really all there is.
The heart is a surprisingly elastic and terribly practical organ with amazing capacity. To quote Shakespeare,
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep; the more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite.”
Happy Valentine’s Day.
