Always

Because you are kind,

Because you are patient,

I love you.

Because you do not envy or boast,

Because you are not arrogant or rude,

I love you.

Because you do not insist on your own way,

Because you are not irritable or resentful,

I love you.

Because you do not rejoice with wrongdoing,

But rejoice with the truth,

I love you.

Because you bear all things,

Because you believe all things,

Because you hope all things,

Because you edure all things,

I love you.

Because you know me as I know you,

Completely, fully, and without fear.

For these things,

I will love you, always.
