All others turned away
but you.
even my mother;
you braved their wrath.
In my view that
makes you the hero,
not I.
One man saw good
in me;
I tried to change;
I couldnąt.
I gave up.
I surrendered.
I quit.
But you saved me;
against my will,
you became my friend.
I grew to be yours.
Now I cannot live
without you.
