I just mentioned this song in the newly created thread asking for our favorite John Lennon vocals. I came here to post more thoughts about this tune and was more than mildly surprised that there was no discussion about it.

Confession time:

This song touches me deeply. The lyrics contain thoughts and words that I have said to my beautiful bride of 33+ years. Every time I hear it, without fail, I have to wipe away at least one tear. I remember, a few years ago, I posted a story about hearing this song over a PA system while shopping in a home improvement store. I can't remember whether it was Lowe's or Home Depot, but I digress. The bottom line is, I was openly singing along to it because I loved it and knew every line as if I'd written it myself. In my mind I had. Anyway, I think I may have hidden from sight behind a stack of lumber or a large potted plant or something, because I did not want anyone to see me weeping while I was singing.

"So let me tell you again and again and again - I love you, yeah, yeah - Now and forever"

Yeah...love this song. heart

Awwww @Zig, you're a dear. heart

Even though I can't personally relate to the song, John's magic is such that I can feel an inkling of what he and you must feel, and it is truly beautiful.
