Nothing But Love ~ A Song

This month’s featured song, “Nothing But Love,” was prompted by a relationship wherein one person was recovering from emotional trauma while the other was on standby, ready to love. In this story, the path toward healing for the wounded one is to “come out to the fire” and warm himself. In other words, love himself back into wellness first. Once this happens, he will be able to open the door of intimacy and accept love from someone else.

 

The message here is an invitation. We can certainly help foster a supportive and caring environment for one another, when recuperating from a heartache. This is very important and incredibly useful. Ultimately, however, no one can mend our emotional wounds for us. It can take a while to learn, or remember, how to love ourselves, especially after experiencing mistreatment. Yet when we actively practice living from a place of intrinsic worthiness, of choosing to see our own preciousness, we begin to know (again) what it means to sincerely love ourselves. It is then that we discover the wellspring of love that had been surrounding us and reaching for us all the while.

I can’t undo the hurt she’s done
Such a cold, cold past
But I offer you a safe space
A promise to last

 

So come out to the fire
Circle ‘round ‘til you can trust
When you stop to warm yourself
You’ll find nothing but love

 

I can’t stop the wind from blowin’ in
Memories that bite
But I’ll stay with you as morning comes
We’ll hold on through this night

 

So come out to the fire
Circle ‘round ‘til you can trust
‘Cause when you stop to warm yourself
You’ll find nothing but love

 

I can’t fight the ghosts left there on her battleground
I can’t steady the seas of her disaster
But I bring to you the only medicine I’ve found;
A love that stays in ever after…oh

 

Come out to the fire
Circle ‘round ‘til you can trust
When you stop to warm yourself
You’ll find nothing but love

 

Nothing but love
Nothing but love
My love
