I Love You More

When in my arms you reach beyond me
Then sing your song like a troubadour
That doesn’t mean I love you less
I love you more

When in your youth you fight and falter
And scorn my voice, my words, my offer
That doesn’t mean I love you less
I love you more

When seeking truth births pain, not bliss
And my presence you all but ignore
That doesn’t mean I love you less
I love you more

When I am free, my exile over
And leave this world for one obscure
That doesn’t mean I love you less
I love you more

When in your memory I cease to enter
And the waves wash my name from the shore
That doesn’t mean my hour has ended
My love endures
