Persistence

I was young, unattached,

With not a care in the world.

You had your sorrows,

Your life had taken its toll.

 *

I disregarded you at first

Distracted by my petty pleasures.

Yet you persisted,

With endurance and affection.

*

You won me over in the end.

Your patience and respect

Got my attention.

*

Your unrelenting love

holds it still.

I love you
