True and Strong

True and Strong
I used to think I loved you,
but I was so very wrong. 
I knew not a thing about real love;
and it's taken me this long. 

To realize what it really means,
and how it can get so strong. 
How it can be there through it all
between us all along. 

We can't forget about it,
or neglect it. 
We must cultivate it,
and protect it. 

and it's reward is a friendship 
and a love that to only 
you and me will belong.
