Because.

Because I love you, I understand if you are overwhelmed and can't get to the phone.

I do not expect all of you, all the time. Sometimes minds are else where and that's okay.

Just let me be there. 

Because I love you, I won't force you to talk to me. Silence can be beautiful. And silence can speak more than words can.

Because I love you, I won't make you pay for every meal, every gift, or every anything. You work hard to earn your money.

Because I love you, I will try not hold grudges. I will try not to judge. I will try not to be petty over small things. Then again I am human, so these promises will not always be fulfilled.

But because I love you I will try to keep those promises.

Because I love you, I won't intentionally hurt you in any way. I've felt the pain of an unhealthy relationship and that is something I do not wish upon anyone. Especially you.

I love you.
