Commentary of Alan Jackson’s “Remember When”

alan jackson

I wish that there was another name that I could use when describing my profession as a wedding photographer. Yes, I physically show up to photograph weddings but I really photograph beginnings. Generations always beginning with the words, “I do.” I don’t think of the wedding as just two people dedicating their hearts, minds, and souls together but a place and time in which future generations can look back and see where it all started.

It is important to remember a relationship’s past because it gives a little meaning to the relationship itself. This is what I thought when I listened to Alan Jackson’s, “Remember When” song. Sometimes people just need to take a little time and remember why they loved their spouse to begin with. What was it that made their heart beat faster every time they heard their voice or saw their face. One older gentleman after 60 years of marriage described his relationship with is wife as, “I love my wife. I don’t know where I begin or end and it certainly seems that I desire more and more to have my heart and her heart beats as one.”

No matter where you are in your relationship never forget why you love and the commitment that you made to your Love’s heart, mind, and soul. Please take a moment to read and listen to what he has to say.

Remember when I was young and so were you
and time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other’s hearts
Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet
was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we’d never give it up
Remember when

Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookn’ back it’s just a steppin’ stone
To where we are,
Where we’ve been
Said we’d do it all again
Remember when
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad
For all the life we’ve had
And we’ll remember when
