“Who are you? Answer; you are who you are in this given moment. Label-less. Limitless. Remember that from this day forward.”
― Connor Franta, A Work in Progress

When the final remnants of memories fade away,
Will you love me when I am old and gray?
Or perhaps the time I lose my ability to see,
And all I know are days teeming with apathy.

Worn newspaper clippings as wrinkled as my skin,
Will you realize beauty comes from within?
The days continuously pass by,
Hold back the tears so I don’t cry. 

As I utter my last word,
Will you make sure you heard?
“I love you forever…”
You say, “Don’t worry, I am with you wherever.”

The author's comments:

Love is a complicated concept. I think as teenagers we don't necessarily know what love is until we are old enough to realize we have been immersed in it with our husband or wife. Therefore, I think the best representation of love is an old couple. My grandparents have been married for 55 years and known each other for 60 years. That is incredible. Love that lasts that long is beautiful.
