Unconditional


I don't care how exasperating you are,
I don't care how much you get on my nerves.
I care about always treating you the same.
Love is always patient.

I don't care how you treat me,
I don't care if you're mean to me.
I care about how I am to you.
Love is always kind.

I don't care if you're with someone else,
I don't care if your best friend isn't me.
I care about your happiness.
Love is never jealous.

I don't care if you love me or not,
I don't care if my love is never returned.
I care about your well-being.
Love does not seek its own.

I don't care if you tease me,
I don't care if you won't let me forget my mistakes.
I care about forgetting yours.
Love does not take offense.

I don't care about how I've been wronged,
I don't care about what you've done to me.
I care about what you've done for me.
Love does not store up grieviances.

I don't care about reputations,
I don't care about who you're said to be.
I care about who you are.
Love finds joy in truth.

I don't care about rumours,
I don't care about what people say.
I care about what I know you to be.
Love is always ready to hope.

I don't care about what happens,
I don't care if it doesn't fit my schedule.
I care about being there for you.
Love endures whatever comes.

I don't care how long it is,
I don't care how many years,
I care about staying the same.
Love has no end.
