Love Without End, Amen
If you listen to country radio, you’ll be familiar with songs like “Love Without End, Amen.” These songs were written by Aaron Barker and George Strait, and they are about a father and his son. Barker wrote “Love Without End, Amen” after he gave his teenage son some tough love. After that night, Barker felt a great deal of unrest.
Despite the fact that the song is about a mother’s first meeting with her son, it is not about a first kiss. It’s about romantic love at first sight. Roberta Flack, who sang the song, didn’t write it. She grew up as a cat-lover, and associates the song with the dead cat she loved dearly. She recorded her version of the song in the 1971 movie, Play Misty for Me.
The lyrics are equally touching and moving. The song is dedicated to her first son, Zion David Marley. His father was Bob Marley’s favorite comedian. The song is about the joys of parenthood, and the uncertainties of growing up. But the song also honors his father’s memory.
