An Unfeigned Assertion

It was bliss
It was fast
Some say we’re not going to last
But do we really care
About what they all would say?

Never doubt, l’amour
My love for you is unrelenting
Every step I take from now on
I shall take it with you
For every battle you face
I shall fight for you

It was bliss
It was fast
Everyone thinks that we are never meant to last
Shall we listen to them then?
Listen to all their discouragements
Hear about all their judgments

Never doubt, mon amour
For I shall love you in the morning
And a thousand more mornings after that
I love you for all that you are
Together we’ll count our flaws like we count the stars

It was bliss
It was fast
Everyone tells us we got too serious too fast
We had wounds that were still to heal
But they don’t really understand what we feel

Never doubt, my love
For every waking moment to you I shall remain faithful
My heart, my soul and my life are all yours, be grateful
I will love you unrelentingly
Till the end of my days, I will love you truly

“When she saw him face to face their eyes met and brushed like birds’ wings. After that everything was all right, everything was wonderful, she knew that he was beginning to fall in love with her.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night
