I will Wait as long as it takes

I am almost 17, and the man that I love is 25. We have been the best of friends for years, and we have supported each other in more than one way. We never ask anything of each other, except sincerity and friendship. He is very mature for his age, and he has never left me. Not once. He saved me from depression, and loves to learn more about me. He is also my Spiritual Guide. I owe him my life and happiness. Just recently I confessed my love to him, and he accepted it in a very good manner. He cares a lot about me. I promised to him that I would wait as long as it takes, because I love him from the very bottom of my heart. I intend to keep that promise. In the end, however, I will leave it to be his choice wether he would want to be with me or not.
