T Is For Tenacious

From the first moment questions of "Am I?"
Turned to cemented knowledge of "I am!"
You have been loved
You've taken residence in my heart
Engraved, imprinted, fixed
The curve of your forehead, the slope of your nose
Every freckle counted and blessed
Years do not lessen my love
It's intense, tenacious, certain, unshakable
If you take anything with you from your childhood
Take my love
It's been yours from day one.
