I love you for the way you have waited
For the way you have believed all along
Although you were troubled, you didn’t falter
And in the darkest hour I heard your song.
I love you for your love to each other
For the pity you held for earthen life
When others ravaged o’er earth with poison
I saw you bearing precious seed to hide.
I love you for seeing something greater
A future that I promised long ago
Believe me now, it’s coming so much closer
And your own eyes will see it here below.
I love you for not kneeling at that altar
The blood of all the innocents has stained
For wearing castoff rags to be cleaner
Instead of being dressed by all the slain.
I love you. I won’t forget you. Never.
I’ll remember each day I am away.
You’re waiting, believing what I’ve spoken
Tomorrow you may find me here to say. . .
I love you.
