'Till the End

‘Till The End

Verse 1

Do you remember Honey
Back in High School
And How I thought I knew what love was
A foolish Young boy I was
The only thing I wanted
Was to win Your Love.

I remember thinking that she’ll never go for a boy like me
but as I prayed these words
God gave the gift of you to me

Chorus

I want to love you honey
Like God loves you honey
I want to be more than a friend
And So I promise to you
That I’ll always be here for you
Good or bad
Till The End
Till The End

Verse 2

I know you remember Honey
The day each baby come
And How I thought I knew what love was
We had no room for more
Yet God gave some more
And Finally a girl to keep

I remember thinking that I’ll never be the dad she needs
But as I prayed these words
God reminded me of what love means

 

Chorus

I want to love you honey
Like God loves you honey
I want to be more than a friend
And So I promise to you
That I’ll always be here for you
Good or bad
Till The End
Till The End

Love means you before me, revealed by Jesus at Calvary
So I pray each day God give me the strength to love this way

Chorus

So I can love you honey
Like God loves you honey
So I can be more than a friend
So I can promise to you
That I’ll always be here for you
Good or bad
Till The End

Chorus

I’m gonna love you honey
Like God loves you honey
I’m gonna  be more than a friend
I’ll Keep my promise to you
That I’ll always be here for you
Good or bad
Till The End
Till The End

I’m gonna love you
Till The End
Ohh Till the End

 

Reflection

It was the spring of my sophomore year, when a friend of mine had either suggested to me to ask Tammy out or at least introduced us to each other. Tammy and I dated in High School and we were engaged in February of her Senior year of High School. After looking back, I now realize how young we were. At the time, I thought I knew what love was about yet I quickly found out that I had a lot to learn. During those years of dating, all I could think about was being with Tammy. Any free time I had was spent with her and she spent many of hours watching me play baseball during the summer time. She supported me then and continues to support me today. I believe that is what I loved most about Tammy, she was dedicated to me and I knew that she would always be there for me. I remember praying to God asking him to let Tammy be the one that I spent the rest of my life with.

We were married June 14, 1997 and on March 12, 1998 we were blessed with our first Son, Dustin. Once again, I thought I knew what love was, yet with addition of each kid, including Lexi and Leslie who died at birth, God continue to teach me more about how to Love others, and when we had Brooklyn, it was no different. I truly remember thinking, I was so thankful that God was letting me keep this little girl here on earth and I also remember thinking that I’ll never be the Dad she needs. I mean she was so beautiful, so precious, and the most intimidating part SHE WAS A GIRL. At this point in our lives we had 5 boys at home, and I knew all about boys. So when Brooklyn was introduced to the family, all I could do was hold her. Yep, I spoiled her and according to the rest of the family, I still spoil her to this day.

As you can see this song is a story about Tammy’s and mine’s past. Yet the spark to write this song came from a prayer that I said after reading a passage from Ephesians Chapter 5 verses 25-28, Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
I don’t remember the exact prayer yet, I do remember bits and pieces of it.

“Lord Help me Love my wife as Christ loved the Church. Teach me to be more than just a friend. Help me lord be strong for her till the end. Lord allow me to love myself so that I am able to love her.”

I had read these passages before yet they hit me hard as I read them that day. I remember asking do I truly love my wife the way God loves his church. I asked questions like do I present her to the world without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish. On the day we were married did my life become hers? This song, or should I say this prayer was part of the process that God continues with me today to show me and remind me that my love should and will continue to grow each day for my wife,and for my family. About the time I think there’s no more room for love, God reminds me that His love will continue to grow “Till the End”.
