泛听材料1: Show Your Love
Many times, the small things in life, which we often ignore, are more important than the ones that we consider far more valuable.
This theme is highlighted in Kenny Roger's song Buy Me a Rose.
In his song, he insists on the fact that the expression of love plays a significant role in a relationship.
However, many people seem to ignore this fact and assume that love can be expressed through wealth and riches.
In his song, Kenny Rogers narrates the story of a wife whose husband loves her very much.
However, she thinks that the way her husband shows her his love is not appropriate.
According to her husband, the best way of showing his love to his wife is by providing her with all the wealth and comforts of life.
Consequently, he works hard day and night and is thus not able to devote any of his time to her.
His wife, however, argues that this is not what she wants.
All she wants for him is to show her more affection by giving her more of his time, caring for her and by expressing his feelings for her.
These are the things that she yearns for in her life and not the big, flashy things that he has given her.
"Buy me a rose, call me from work.”
Open a door for me, what would it hurt?
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes.
These are the little things I need the most in my life.”
To her, these are all the things that can bring her maximum joy and happiness.
Although her husband loves her very much, his way of showing his love for her is creating distances between the two.
And as time passes by, the distance keeps increasing.
This song expresses how we lead our lives in today's world and how we think that it takes a lot to make a person happy.
It is always the simple pleasures of life which make a difference.
It is never the big and flashy things.
The main idea of Buy Me A Rose” is that people who are closer to us deserve more sincere expression of our love, which may be found in smaller things in life.
Spending time with them rather than spending money on them is a better way of expressing our love.
We should learn to express our feelings than to show our love through material goods.
Express your love.
