ASCAP) Copyright (c) 1996 by Atlantic Recording Corp. for the United States and WEA International for the world outside the United States Written and sung by Donna Lewis Magical, romantic moments: Can they sustain a relationship? Such experiences usually mean.that one has "fallen in love." This seems to be the case for the woman in Donna Lewis' debut chart hit, "I Love You Always Forever." This person exhibits many signs of infatuation. Her guy has "got the most unbelievable blue eyes that I've ever seen." Her rendezvous with him are "exotic sweetness" apd "magical." She asks him to "say, say it again: I love you always forever." She believes that this "forever': is certain and true. Romantic infatuation tends to feel this way. Yet, genuine love is different. "Forever" gets replaced by one day at a time and learning how to nurture a relationship as it changes. Of course, such an understanding wouldn't make for a pop chart hit! Most of us would rather fantasize about a "timeless dream of light" and being "lost in a deep cloud of heavenly scent." However, a "forever" that endures gets rooted more firmly in the ground of daily life than in "mood-altering dreams. If you want your infatuation to grow into a healthy, continuing relationship, consider these suggestions: 1. Talk about how each of you has fallen in love. Appreciate the experience, for romantic ation can be fun. Realize that the emotional highs: cannot be sustained. They are only a small love that lasts. 2. Avoid saying what the song states, words such as "forever" or "never." Infatuation rarely lasts, even when you are sure that it will. Consequently, be careful about what you say to another. Love built on feelings is bound to change If we are aware of this, infatuation is less likely lead to hurt and a broken heart. 3. As you carry on the infatuation, what values are important to you. If you make that violate your standards, the romance costs you your own sense of self. While such a loss need not be permanent, your individuality is a gift from God. broker it in exchange for the "feel good" 4. Try to keep a sense of humor about what eventually unfolds. If your love matures into a uine, lasting bond, you will need to negotiate con- flicts and problems. If the romance fizzles, you still have gained new insights into relationships. Trust what happens. God will guide you and help you turn this experience into an important time of learning. (Your comments are always welcome. Please address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, Rockport, Ind. 47635.)
