    Re: the fact that ...

    They're both fine. The second one sounds just slightly odd, though. What are you trying to say? Here are some more common possibilities:

    You'll always care about me.
    You've always cared about me.
    You always think about me.
    You care about me very much.
    You're always concerned about me.

    Thank you, Charlie

    care about = worry about

    Is this OK?

    If you are trying to convey the idea of "worry" then "concerned" is the best choice.
