Only Love ❤️

A few months before we lost my Dad I still had so many questions to ask him. In fact I asked him to send me lists of his all time favourite films, songs etc and found out that he loved the song “Only Love” by Nana Mouskouri which made absolutely sense given how huge heart. We used to sing together in a local musical theatre company so music was a big connecting force for us and on hearing this song whilst out jogging recently my heart turned to mush!

Only Love

You shared with me the songs you loved

three months before your passing

The questions asked were n’er enough, so much still for the asking

We’d always found that words and sounds would bond us so innately

I knew to keep your soul around, those tunes would help me greatly

Five years have gone and still that song can move my heart so deeply

For Only Love through you grows on – you lived those notes completely

Our thinking states can complicate but you knew what was needed

Your spirit’s music elevates, my symphony – you freed it

The melodies we live inside are there for the unmasking

and though sometimes it’s bittersweet, in songs of Love I’m basking
