Paying homage to love with words

Vusi Qwabe

Endulweni Section: Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and most lovers will be exchanging gifts. But let’s face it, love is still one of those misunderstood virtues to men. Fortunately, there are few men like Vusi Qwabe who understand the true meaning of love. He reached out to The Olifants to pay a special homage to love with words. He chose to dedicate a poem and an article to a woman who captured his heart lately, Keletso. The lovebirds met on Facebook a year ago, and their love seems to be growing from strength to strenght. Here is Vusi’s poem:

You know that you are in love

When your heart skips a beat

You know you are in love.

When you want to hear her repeat

I love you.

You know you are in love.

When you stare at her face

You know you are in love.

When you want to embrace

The words

 I’m in love with you!

“Keletso, my love, I love the way you make me happy and how much you care. I love the way you say to me, “I love you,” and the way you’re always there,” wrote Vusi.

As we know, Valentine’s Day is coming on Monday 14 February 2022. We need to ask ourselves the following question: What is the true meaning of Valentine’s Day? Is it when lovers express their affection with greetings and gifts? What the bible says about Valentine’s Day on 1 John 4-7-12: “No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us” As the word of God alluded, when we love each other God abides in us.

Why Valentine’s Day is important? You may ask. Well, Valentine’s Day is a day that reminds us about the importance of loving one another. Put differently; it is like an annual festival to celebrate romantic love, friendship, and admiration. All over the world, we see couples exchanging gifts, cards, flowers and spending quality time together. It is one of the few ways lovers try to honor their love for each other. But where did Valentine’s Day originate from? Or how did Valentine’s Day be organised to become what it is today? Many people credit ancient Romans for being responsible for inventing Valentine’s Day. A legend goes that Emperor Claudius executed two men named Valentine on 14 February. The Catholic church honored the men’s martyrdom, which oddly chose to celebrate Valentine’s Day on 13 February 2011. So as you can see, it doesn’t matter who started Valentine’s Day, or when you celebrate it. What matters is how you choose to express your love.
