How we love - Wednesday Words - 24.7.2013

I seem to be a bit lost with Wednesday Words this week. 

I missed last week so have made it down here with just over two hours to go. Go me - Time management skills down packed.

If i've understood correctly and the topic is 'How we love" then here goes...

It seems like a topic that should roll down from my mind and through my fingertips with such great ease. There are so many ways. The post could go on and on.

We all know that we all love in different ways, it comes in many forms. 

I remember the first time I held my JJ. I still can't describe it. I can't find the words to put on 'paper' that captures that feeling. It's like being hit by what I now know is pure unconditional love - an absolute explosion.

I didn't realise it straight away. In fact, it took about 6 weeks. When I look back now at those first 6 weeks I just felt like I was on auto pilot. Feed, change, bath, sleep and keep him safe. Keep him safe, keep him safe. Then bang - I knew it, I kept him safe because I loved him. NOthing or no one could come in between that or break it down. This new found love was hands down the best thing i'd ever felt.

Here is my song for this weeks Wednesday Words. I distinctly remember my mother saying that one day when I had my own child I'd understand the meaning. Is hows she loved me, how I love Jonathan and how Jonathan will one day love his child.

                                       Roberta Flack - The First Time Ever I saw Your Face

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the end of the skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last, till the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

Listen - The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.
