I Choose You

sara-bareilles-001-01 Sara Bareilles has a new song entitled “I Choose You”.  The song is clearly a love song, but is it only appropriate for lovers?  Isn’t it also appropriate for the beautiful choice of adoption?  Adoption is an act of love freely given to another.  It is the choice to willingly open one’s heart to risk.  It can be scary, hard, painful, but isn’t this the case with all love?   I have posted the lyrics, but I encourage you to scroll down and click the YouTube link to listen to the song. “I Choose You” Let the bough break, let it come down crashing Let the sun fade out to a dark sky I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent Cause I could live by the light in your eyes I’ll unfold before you What I’ve strung together The very first words Of a lifelong love letter Tell the world that we finally got it all right I choose you I will become yours and you will become mine I choose you I choose you (Yeah) There was a time when I would have believed them If they told me you could not come true Just love’s illusion But then you found me and everything changed And I believe in something again My whole heart Will be yours forever This is a beautiful start To a lifelong love letter Tell the world that we finally got it all right I choose you I will become yours and you will become mine I choose you I choose you We are not perfect We’ll learn from our mistakes And as long as it takes I will prove my love to you I am not scared of the elements I am under-prepared, but I am willing And even better I get to be the other half of you Tell the world that we finally got it all right I choose you Yeah I will become yours and you will become mine I choose you I choose you I choose you
