ANNIVERSARY: LOVE SONG & HOPE

A couple may think of a certain song as being a happy reminder of their relationship. They think it relates to their personal love story better than any other. Through their years together it holds even more love-filled memories. They enjoy listening to it together and fondly refer to it as “our song.”

Written by Irving Gordon and recorded by Nat King Cole, one love song has held special meaning for a particular couple for more than three decades. Many artists have sung the song, but Cole’s smooth voice is an indelible part of their memorable song. With or without a song I think this many good years together gives hope for more in the future.

For this couple their song really is memorable. The lyrics are presented below in honor of our 33rd wedding anniversary, which is today so… “Happy Anniversary, Darling! Here’s to another year together — one that will be unforgettable!”

UNFORGETTABLE

Unforgettable, that’s what you are,
Unforgettable though near or far.
Like a song of love that clings to me,
How the thought of you does things to me.
Never before has someone been more…

Unforgettable in every way,
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay.
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too.

Unforgettable in every way,
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay.
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too.

(Irving Gordon)

“But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
(1 Corinthians 13:13)
