To the man, who's name is faithful...
to the people, who are faithful...
dedicated to you.

I see the sadness in your eyes.
... The authenticity of your sadness
Only describes
to me
The depth of your love.
Your love, seen here for her,
Was scented from above.
Your love, was dragged through hell …
And your love held.
You are a miracle.
You are empirical.
You are shelter.
You are jewel.
You are mule…
A stubborn beauty, love royale.
You were Loyal –
held on to...
You stood fast…
Past the hour,
when love was due.
