I still love you

I still love you
The same way I’ve loved you since I fell in love with you

I still love you
The same way I’ve loved you since I first laid eyes on you

I still love you
The same way I’ve loved you since my first
‘I love you too’

I still love you
Even through the storms and rocky sails,

I still love you
Even though the distance between us makes my nights darker,
my days empty and longer
And the winter cold and dreary

I still love you
Even though you’re so far away and I hardly ever see you

My love remains steadfast… Through it all.

I still love you – poem by Connie V
