About the Song

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you there’s no one else above you?
Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do

“Have I Told You Lately” is a romantic ballad song often played at weddings or debuts. However, it was originally written as a prayer.

The words I love you are often told to someone we really love whether it be our families, friends, or special someone. I bet it is more wonderful to hear those words having told by your special someone. Do you agree? But do you still agree with me if I tell you that it is sweeter to hear those words while a person is also proving that he/she really loves you?
