‘Have you ever loved someone so much, you’d give an arm for?
Not the expression, no, literally give an arm for?
When they know they’re your heart
And you know you were their armouru
And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm her…’
Yeah those are not my words but eminem’s, I was thinking about someone last night and the song came pouring in my head like a flood, my brain was trying to compute what I was thinking and how I was feeling and that’s the way it could.
Love is a beautiful thing it is also a very powerful thing that can make you do things, love makes a father do all he can to make sure his family is ok, a mother be a walking catalogue book ready to spring into action whatever need calls, love makes you go the distance.
We often measure love in the things we are able to give the person we love; trust, hope, security, money, ice cream and cake, whatever it is, but I think you truly understand how much you love someone by the things you give up for them, ‘literally give an arm for’, can you give up that big job in that big city just to stay with her?, can you give up your lunch money just to see her smile? Can you give up your spotlight just to stroke his ego a bit? Can you give up what’s important to you to get what’s most precious to you?. What are you willing to sacrifice on the alter of your love, when you figure that out then you’ll know just how much that person is worth to you. It’s a trick as old as time, Jacob spent 14 years working for some girl, even after he got a wife, Samson was willing to let go of his secrets, and Jesus, don’t even get me started on what he let go of just so when he looks into your eyes and says those 3 magic words (I Love you) no devil in hell can make you think otherwise.
The beauty of love is in its ability to make you give your all and loose your all. Thank you.
