Still, He Sought Her Love

He did not seek her approval.
He was too old and too wise,
Had grown beyond the need.
Still, he sought her love.

But she was too young
To know the difference, and so
Withheld both.  As a result,
She refused his overtures.
The distance grew.

Years passed, and then more.
Until at last, the only thing
He had to give her
Was forgiveness.
