Caroline

 
 
 

You threw glasses at her,
But she filled them with fine whiskey;
You plunged her back with the sharpest dagger,
But she bandaged her own wounds anyway;
You threw century-old rocks at her,
But she instead built a castle and let you in;
You offered her sour wine,
But she poured in honey to make it taste better;
You dumped her with rags,
But she tailored them into a nice suit;
You played her least favorite music,
But she just jived in with the tune and danced ballet;
You gave her your worst, but she offered you her best.
Though you left her in the dirt, she knows neither madness nor revenge.
She's unbreakable. She's extremely strong.
You can't easily find someone like her.
