Neglected Love

I have found you alone unloved, you know.
In this they all have done to you abuse,
And now that tyrant lives with their foe
Careless? dear I was not, a friend to lose.

Truth is, that I have lived to love you
What's more than known is that, what other is
The world does know, the world have known is true?
Find anything, my fault in that and this
What they would say, what not, theirs to save.
My deeds, my own, and here's another proof,
By these I grow tireless your loving slave
'Complete if loving, nothing else here I must do!
