That’s How Strong

Flashback Track #62 asks us to share a song we associate with someone. This one is for love.

I met a glowing man once. An equal, a partner. We read great literature together: classics, contemporaries, theologies. As spiritual partners, we built a bridge, trusted in its construction, and walked across. No one gave us away. No one to honor or obey. Arm and arm down that bamboo lane and asked for water from our friends to make the garden grow again. And so it did. Yes, so it did. Two sunflower kids. Where others saw a tree, we carved a family. We sanded in the same direction, us two. What’s his was mine and what’s mine was his. That’s how strong love is.

Lyrics to the song that played when we took that important walk.

That’s How Strong My Love by Roosevelt Jamison

If I was the sun way up there
I’d go with love most everywhere
I’ll be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know that I’m still around

That’s how strong my love is, whoa
That’s how strong my love is
That’s how strong my love is, baby, baby
That’s how strong my love is

I’ll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
And you can go swimming when you’re here
And I’ll be the rainbow after the tears are gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

That’s how strong my love is, darling
That’s how strong my love is, baby
That’s how strong my love is, whoa
That’s how strong my love is

I’ll be the ocean so deep and wide
And catch the tears whenever you cry
I’ll be the breeze after the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and love you warm

That’s how strong my love is, baby
That’s how strong my love is
That’s how strong my love is, darling
That’s how strong my love is, again now

That’s how strong my love is, so deep in
Well, that’s how strong my love is
So much love, yes so much love, whoa
Yes so much love, yes so much love
Anything that I can do, I’ll be good for you
Any kind of love you want, I’ll be with you
