Every Day I Love You

Saturday, December 10, 2016




I understand that I am not the very best person to talk about religion. However, I do believe in the greatest power in this universe that belongs to an entity we called as God. At times, I ask to myself; do I deserve to be happy? Sometimes the answer is yes; I believe that everyone in this world has their own right to be happy, and that is including me. However, there are times when I think that perhaps some people are destined to not deserve happiness, and I am one of them. Because when everyone deserves to be happy, then why do some people keep feeling the constant sadness which they cannot even explain why or where it does come from? Because when everyone has the right to be happy, then why do some people even have the constant loneliness even when they are in love? Can people be happy but sad at the same time? Can people be in love but lonely simultaneously? What is happiness anyway? Is it the same for everyone? I believe that I am happy now; but do I deserve this kind of happiness? They say that some people bring out the worst in you, while others bring out the best; and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most of everything; they make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep you getting fix. Perhaps my question was wrong in the beginning. Instead of asking about happiness, I should ask about being alive. Am I feeling alive? The answer is definitely yes; and I guess that is the essence of being alive; it is to be able to feel happy, sad, and lonely while we’re in love.

I don’t know, but I believe that some things are meant to be. And that you’ll make a better me. Everyday I love you.” –Boyzone, Every Day I Love You

Before their initial split in 2000, the Irish boy band Boyzone released a final single titled “Every Day I Love You”. It was released on November 22nd 1999 as the promotional single for the group’s Asian Special Edition Bonus Track of their greatest hits compilation album, “By Request”, which was released on May 31st 1999. This pop ballad track was written by Gary Baker, Frank Joseph Myers and Jerry Allan Williams. For me personally, this song is magical. Listening to it makes me feel the beautiful sadness in love; it is heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time.

With all consciousness, I know that I do not have the capacity to talk about religion. However, I do believe that every story is determined by the owner of the greatest power in this universe. I do believe that God is the source of rhythm and cadency in every tale. And meeting the person we truly love would make us feel certain of that. “I don’t know, but I believe that some things are meant to be. And that you’ll make a better me. Everyday I love you.” Meeting the person we really love would make us believe that the greatest power does exist, since even our dream that mostly seems impossible could come true. Meeting the person we deeply love would convince us that the architect of this universe does exist, since even thing that mostly unexpected could happen. Through that person, we feel the love of God. Through that person, we become better as we learn something new, in every day. “I never thought that dreams came true but you showed me that they do. You know that I learn something new. Everyday I love you.”
We never know what the future will bring. We never know what God has prepared for us; and God always knows how to tease with us. We never know what universe has set up for us; and universe always has its own way to surprise us. I do believe in serendipity. And I do believe that everything takes place at the right time, hence there is always a right time for everything to happen. This person comes into my life and brings out the most of everything. Why now and why not five years ago? Perhaps it is because now is the right time for us. “It’s a touch when I feel bad. It’s a smile when I get mad. All the little things I am; everyday I love you.” Through the presence of this person, I feel so grateful towards God and the universe. Through the existence of this person, I feel the best feeling in the world; it is not always about happiness, but it is more about being alive. It is the mixture of every feeling that makes me feel blessed. “If I asked would you say yes? Together we’re the very best. I know that I am truly blessed. Everyday I love you. And I’ll give you my best. Everyday I love you.”
Take a look back at it now, I feel that God and universe really have a great sense of humor. Just like what Karl Marx once said; if it happens once it is a tragedy, but if it happens twice then it is a comedy. Indeed, life is a comedy if we take a look at the bigger picture of it. Five years ago I would never imagine my life would come to this point; especially after what happened with me and him back then. “‘Cause I believe that destiny is out of our control; don’t you know that I do? And you’ll never live until you love with all your heart and soul.” But now I’ve come to this point and it has made me realize that this love we have is what making me feel alive, every single day. “Everyday I love you more.” It is okay to feel sad and lonely. It is alright to feel unhappy. Even when we are in love, it is fine to feel all of those feelings simultaneously. Since by being able to feel itself is the sign that we are alive. In order to feel alive, it is alright to be brave to pour our heart and soul in love, to afford the best, to show the worst, and to be the most.

I understand that people believe what they want to believe. And I want to believe that when we really love someone then we are able to be better, somehow. And I want to believe that when we truly love someone then we are able to learn something new, some way. And I want to believe that when we deeply love someone then we are able to feel loved for all the things we are. And I want to believe that when we greatly love someone then we are able to give the very best. And I want to believe that when we sincerely love someone then we are able to feel blessed. It would make us believe that some things are meant to be, that even the most impossible dream could come true, and that destiny could bring it all together. It would make us feel alive by being able to feel happy and sad at the same time. In the end, do I deserve to be happy? Well, I don’t know; but I believe that everyone has their own right to define what happiness is for them. And everyone has their own way to define that. Therefore I dare to say that I do deserve to be happy with my own terms of happiness. People may say bad things about me and my current state of relationship. Even my partner may have his own meaning of happiness in this relationship we share. However, this is what I feel now. Every day I love you, Vid. Together we’re the very best. I know that I am truly blessed. And I’ll give you my best. If I asked, would you say yes?

If I asked would you say yes? Together we’re the very best. I know that I am truly blessed. Everyday I love you.” –Boyzone, Every Day I Love You


I don’t know, but I believe that some things are meant to be
And that you’ll make a better me, everyday I love you
I never thought that dreams came true but you showed me that they do
You know that I learn something new, everyday I love you

‘Cause I believe that destiny is out of our control, don’t you know that I do?
And you’ll never live until you love with all your heart and soul

It’s a touch when I feel bad, it’s a smile when I get mad
All the little things I am, everyday I love you 

Everyday I love you more, everyday I love you

‘Cause I believe that destiny is out of our control, don’t you know that I do?
And you’ll never live until you love with all your heart and soul

If I asked would you say yes? Together we’re the very best
I know that I am truly blessed, everyday I love you
And I’ll give you my best, everyday I love you
