Love….by Musiq Soulchild
I have a vivid memory of hearing that song after my aunt’s funeral. It may have been the first time I actually heard that song. It started with the opening lines of that song, where I changed the words. Well actually just one word. The word Love was replaced with Lord. I heard that song earlier this week which made me think of this, but not every time I hear that song I have to remind myself of the real words.
Lord….there’s so many things I’ve got to tell you, but I’m afraid I don’t know how. Cuz there’s a possibility that you’ll look at me differently, Lord….ever since the first moment, I spoke your name. From then on I knew, that by you being in my life, things were destined to change….
Maybe the words don’t make sense for a funeral, but it was what I needed to hear at the time. It offered the comfort that was necessary for me to get through that moment. If you know the song I’m referring to, however, and replace the word Love with Lord, you’ll see how much sense it actually makes. I’m not all that much of a religious person, but I do believe in God and am always amazed at how the mind works…how God works.
