I would like to start this post by thanking God for granting me another year on this planet as this was my birthday month. I think this year was one of the best years I have ever had. This year was characterized much maturity and love. Love from others but most importantly from myself. Recently I stumbled upon a song by John Mayer titled “love is a verb”. After looking up the lyrics for the song, I felt like sharing them with everyone I know. But instead of spamming people’s inboxes, I decided to include them as part of this post. So here are the lyrics from the song “love is a verb”.
"Love is a verb It ain't a thing It's not something you own It's not something you scream
When you show me love I don't need your words Yeah love ain't a thing Love is a verb Love ain't a thing Love is a verb Love ain't a crutch It ain't an excuse No you can't get through love On just a pile of I-O-Us Love ain't a drug Despite what you've heard Yeah love ain't a thing Love is a verb Love ain't a thing Love is a verb
So you gotta show, show, show me Show, show, show me Show, show, show me That love is a verb You gotta show, show, show me Show, show, show me Show, show, show me That love is a verb Love ain't a thing Love is a verb
I hope these lyrics help people to realize that love really is a verb. You can tell who loves you by their actions. In fact, my dad has always told me that “love is taking care”. Taking care of others and most importantly, yourself. Because if your love for yourself is so strong it means that you are taking care of yourself so that you might be able to love/take care of your neighbor/lover as you do for yourself. Thank you all for reading my blog. I do not take your support for granted. I hope the next time someone tells you that they love you, that you don’t believe them unless they have actually shown that through actions. 🙂 ❤
