I love you more today than yesterday - Spiral Starecase

This is a phrase more popular for the song than for its deeper meaning.

I just paused from reading assigned cases for our Taxation Law subject and thought about Love. From law to love... funny ha? So what was the deeper meaning behind this song? For me, it's the reverse reality of the phrase that "I love more yesterday than today". It is easier, or should I say it was easier to love the person when we first met them than to love them each day that passes amidst your discovery of his or her flaws. It takes a lot of courage and commitment to do that.

I am a believer of an unconditional love. I'm also an advocate and I believe I practice it until now. But while I learn about laws and statutes in law school, there is a separability clause which generally says: (for the sake of my non-legal-oriented readers, this is what it normally says:)
"If any action or provision of this law shall be declared unconstitutional or void by any court of competent jurisdiction, or the applicability thereof to any person or circumstances shall be held invalid, the constitutionality and validity of the remainder of the chapter and the applicability thereof to other persons and circumstances shall not be affected thereby, and to this end the sections and provisions of this law are declared to be severable."

I also have my own separability clause because I love a particular person but... there it is "but"... I ignore those things I don't like about them. That is my law on love. Unconsciously I am practicing it. It is final and executory. But it doesn't mean I hate the person because on the contrary, I do. I would like to believe I love unconditionally with the exeption of the things I dislike about you. That is my separability clause. I may say I love you more today than yesterday but... there are exeptions.

Sharing my thoughts for today... here is the lyrics.


I don't remember what day it was
I didn't notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Every day's a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow

Tomorrow's date means springtime's just a day away
Cupid, we don't need ya now, be on your way
I thank the lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And I always will be true
I know you feel the same way too

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But only half as much as tomorrow
