does love grow fire resistant
as the longer it has burned
does love become resilient
every time its dashed and spurned
does love create more theories
when it's lessons are unlearned
the love that lasts the longest
is the love that's not returned
 
does love become much brighter
when it's glow is not discerned
does love begin new stories
when the chapter, last, has turned
does love regain its appetite
when stomach has been churned
the love that lasts the longest
is the love that's not returned
 
does love grow ever taller
when the target's unconcerned
does love sing even louder
when it's echo is not yearned
does love increase in value
when no interest's ever earned
the love that lasts the longest
is the love that's not returned
