Give Me the Strength Completion

Whatever I do, whatever I write or say,
Always know this: that I'm in love with you,
And will love you as long as I remain
A living man. That which is between us
Cannot be broken. I have tried to break it,
But it's a thousand times beyond my strength.
I've roundly cursed you, hated you and damned you
Because of your brusque and brutal thoughtlessness,
Sometimes for things outside of your control.
True, I have been rash, wild, foolish, fitful,
But think you what it is that's made me so:
You know about the pangs of frustrate passion,
How seethes and pounds and surges the hot blood;
You know beyond all doubt what true love is,
And that I, your lover, am in love with you.
