If I’ve ever…

If I’ve ever told you I loved you,
I meant it. I still do.

Because, what I meant wasn’t that
I was “in love” with you…
I don’t care much for that phrase,
I’m not even sure I believe in it, really.
“In love”… A feeling… I don’t think so.

Anyway, what I did mean, was that I love YOU,
I choose to love you, daily.
Not who you want me to think you are,
And certainly not who I think you should be…

I meant I love you,
1 Corinthians 13 love,
Action driven love,
Real love.

I meant I’ve decided to, as much as I can,
Be patient with you. Even on bad days.
To be kind to you, even when it’s difficult.
To be slow to anger and to forgive you,
Seventy times seven times a day.

I meant I love you,
1 Corinthians 13 love,
Love with understanding that without it,
I am nothing.

I meant I’ve decided to trust you,
Each day with a trust brand spanking new.
To rejoice in your truth,
No matter how difficult it may for me,
To remain hopeful in you, to always, always, protect you.

So, if I’ve ever told you I love you,
I meant it and I definitely still do.
