The Greates Love of All

Dinyanyikan pertama kali oleh George Benson…, saya mendengarkannya pertama kali tahun 1977 an… ketika itu masih SMP.  Pada awalnya, saya menyukai lagu ini karena merupakan soundtrack-nya film the Greates, cerita tentang Muhammad Ali, petinju yang saat itu begitu tenarnya,  dan setiap pertandingan ditunggu-tunggu semua orang. Saking tenarnya, pernah suatu kali, sekolah dibebaskan, dan semua murid, berkumpul di aula bersama dengan guru nonton pertandingan Ali melawan Foreman.  Lama setelah itu, ketika direnungkan, liriknya cukup menarik dan bisa menjadi inspirasi… terutama tentang pendidikan bagi seorang anak…. Liriknya kira-kira begini…

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

And if by chance, that special place
That you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

Saya selalu berharap.. agar anak-anak bisa menemukan hidupnya.. dan bisa bermanfaat untuk semua orang… serta menjadi orang-orang yang senantiasa diridhai-NYA di setiap langkahnya.
