    There’s a song called “Love in Any Language”, can’t remember the artist right now but it starts out saying I Love You in 4 languages, most of which I don’t know how to spell or I would simply put them here, I know the first one is Je taime, French. It’s a gorgeous song and has a wonderful message.

    Dianne thanks for sharing. You are right it does have a wonderful message… I looked up the song…. here are the words:
    Je t’aime
    Te amo
    Ya ti-bya lyu blyu
    Ani o hev ot cha
    I love you

    The sounds are all as different
    As the lands from which they came
    And though the words are all unique
    Our hearts are still the same

    Love in any language
    Straight from the heart
    Pulls us all together
    Never apart
    And once we learn to speak it
    All the world will hear
    Love in any language
    Fluently spoken here

    We teach the young our differences
    Yet look how we’re the same
    We love to laugh, to dream our dreams
    We know the sting of pain

    From Leningrad to Lexington
    The farmer loves his land
    And daddies all get misty-eyed
    To give their daughter’s hand

    Oh maybe when we realize
    How much there is to share
    We’ll find too much in common
    To pretend it isn’t there

    Love in any language
    Straight from the heart
    Pulls us all together
    Never apart
    And once we learn to speak it
    All the world will hear
    Love in any language
    Fluently spoken here

    Tho’ the rehtoric of government
    May keep us worlds apart
    There’s no misinterpreting
    The language of the heart

    Love in any language
    Straight from the heart
    Pulls us all together
    Never apart
    And once we learn to speak it
    All the world will hear
    Love in any language
    Fluently spoken here

    Thanks for your comment on our blog! Have a great day! ~ Teresa
