Would You Love Me Anyway
Looking back over the years
remembering all the heartaches, pain, and tears
succumbing to that endless look of frustration
extending beyond love's anticipation,
if you knew the outcome would be like this
would you have let me steal
that unsolicited first kiss?
If the memories were better
full of joy and happiness not bitter
and every effort made
could be less a price paid -
what would you most have missed?
The love beyond all measure
all the experiences treasured?
If there was a do-over
and life could be roses and clover
tell me true
would you have said that I do?
And if time could be rehearsed
giving all to the fates of the universe
could you do it all again and the vows say
would you love me anyway?
