Admire, I Do...You

Admire,
I do...
You.

Admitting it is not as easy.
This feeling I have is new.
Over the years it grew.
And one day out of the 'blue',
I just knew.

Admire,
I do...
You.

The way you walk,
With your head held up.
Your eyes so wise and bright.

Your words direct,
I now respect.
With my mind more open.
And more prepared to accept.

Admire,
I do...
You.

Those times we shared.
With you there caring.
And I then unaware...
Just how much you cared.

And today I reflect,
Upon my attitude.
And those awful moods you met,
You did not let upset you.
When you could...
And perhaps should have left,
Me.

Admire,
I do...
You.
And after all those things I put you through,
You stayed.

With me,
You stayed!
With me,
You stayed!
