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
