You may have thought I didnít care,
Or that I hadnít heard
Your declaration of love for me,
But I got every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all
And disparaged your nerve
But love, I picked up everything;
Itís just more than I deserve.
Without you, dear, I wouldnít be
The man I am today.
You showed me hidden depths that now
No-one can take away.
I only hope Iím not too late,
That your feelings are not lost;
You really are a prize to be
Attained at any cost.
Iíve strived to meet your values,
To smooth my jagged cape;
So hereís to you, my one true love,
From your own Professor Snape.
