While traveling once, I came across a radio station that was playing a lot of old music. One of the songs seemed deeply timeless. It was called “Nature Boy.” The lyrics are:
There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he
And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return"
That really struck me as meaningful. Most people don’t say, “I love you” enough. I’ve heard that there is less romantic behavior in most relationships than would be ideal. Sure, “we’ve got holidays for that,” but why wait? Why not surprise her, just because you love her?
I recently visited RomanceForEveryone.com, and it has a lot of tips about how to up the level of romance in your relationships and in your life. One idea that I found particularly appealing outlined how to go about writing a romantic note for a loved one. From what I’ve learned, small gestures make all the difference in a relationship. The site has a collection of brief romantic notes that really carry some emotional weight. I like the suggestion of hiding a note somewhere, so your loved one gets an even greater romantic surprise.
It’s been a long while since I’ve seen anything so sincere about the importance of romance in modern society. RomanceForEveryone.com has helped me remember some of the things we all learn as kids, about why it’s so important to love and be loved.If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
