This Letter – Bill Gentry
It’s a powerful song.
If you’ve ever been in a situation where you have been with someone for years and years you have probably struggled with losing the passion. I’m talking about the love and lust you had in the early days when you couldn’t keep your hands off each other. For whatever reason that can fade over time unless you work to keep things interesting.
With This Letter, Bill Gentry takes on the story of a man and woman struggling with their romance. The man finds an old love letter in the bedroom. He reads the words of how much this man cares for his wife. He becomes furious and can’t handle that she’s with another man. He vows to find the man that is writing these things to his wife.
The man in the story confronts his wife (or girlfriend) and makes a big scene. After the fire clears and there is still a smoldering of emotions the woman says to him that it was his own writing. She loved him all those years ago especially when he was writing love letters and saying all the right things. He hasn’t been doing that anymore and for whatever reason their love has faded.
The man feels ashamed of his behavior and vows to find the man he once was. He wants to find the passion in himself again and find the passion he had for his lover.
It’s a tough thing. I’m not sure why complacency is such a big obstacle in our lives. We all look for stability and routine. It’s in our nature. We tend to find ways to get stuck in life and stop trying to continuously get better at whatever it is we do in life – work, love, and family. We take things for granted and let ourselves get stuck in the same place.
I guess the point of This Letter by Bill Gentry is to always work on improving love. Work on making it even more passionate than the day before. It will only get more difficult over time and that may be frightening, but when you look back on your life you’ll see all the things that make the effort worth it. You’ll probably have a lifetime love and have wonderful memories of passion and emotion.
Now that’s a letter worth writing.
