I've never been so worried or sad,

or angry or anxious or mad,

than when I first knew I loved you.


I had been hurt a lot before,

physically, verbally, maybe a little more,

and I didn't want you to be the same.


The look in your eyes,

it was such a lovely surprise,

I could feel that you loved me, too.


Now, here we are,

oh, how we've come so far,

I love you, forever and always, more every day.
