I Had a Legitimate Excuse

I Had a Legitimate Excuse

I had a legitimate excuse 
for not going to the mosque 
and temple and church to pray. 

It was because love is so wild in me. 

              G.K. Chesterton said, "Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair." A love affair consists of many things, but one of those things is that this is the person you can tell your dreams to. They will give you the confidence, the self belief, and the encouragement needed to pursue them. For, if we have the courage to pursue them, dreams are our realities in waiting. This person will understand that (and they will want to share in it), they will provide your flame with firewood, they will bring along an extra match, and they will kindle the ever-growing pyre with all their heart. This is to love wildly. Some people find this intimate relationship with God only. Others are fortunate enough to find it within another human being. 

Your Song (1970), Elton John
