I read in books
I saw in the movies
I heard from the people
About the real love
But I did not imagine
That ever
I will experience
In my real life
Your glorious, adorable
And strong love
Demonstrating around me
Even at my rudeness
And ignorance
I confess
You have won me
My life and love
I was yours
I am yours
Only yours
Join me to conquer
Heart and mind
Of the people
With love and affection.
