My song today is ‘Let Me Be There’. This popular song was written by John Rostill. It was first recorded by Olivia Newton-John in 1973 and included on her album of the same name. This country-influenced song was Newton-John's first Top 10 single in the U.S., peaking at Number 6. It also won her a ‘Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocalist’.
The song was also covered by many other artists including Elvis Presley (who recorded it live and sang it in many of his concerts before his death): Ike and Tina Turner (1964): Tanya Tucker (1974) Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn (1975).
One of the main reasons for getting married, apart from loving the other person and being their soul mate, is to put that missing piece into the jigsaw puzzle that makes up a happier and more wholesome you. Without that other person, you will never quite feel the person you were meant to feel. We each need the other half of our loving cup to fill us with contentment and satisfaction. We all want our other half to become our constant companion during our journey through life; the one who urges us on when we need that vital encouragement and an extra push to get there. They will become our best friend at our worst moments and offer us a listening ear and their support when everyone else turns away from us. With them, we will always have a shoulder to cry on whenever we need emotional support. They will become in effect, our eternal soul mate, from whom life will never part nor death separate.
And all we have to do in order to benefit from their presence is to ‘let them be there’.
Love and peace Bill xxx
