Because I Love You

Because I love you:

I’ll make sure you eat and drink,

I’ll stop pestering if you say “I’m not hungry.”

Because I love you:

I’ll wipe your tears when you cry,

I’ll make sure to tell you that it’s okay.

Because I love you:

I’ll give you attention if you need it,

I’ll give you space when you ask.

Because I love you:

I’ll make sure you feel happy,

I’ll tell you it’s okay to feel sad.

Because I love you:
I’ll trust your decisions,

I’ll tell you when maybe something you did wasn’t so smart.

Because I love you:

I’ll call you “my love” and “my star”,
I’ll use your name when you ask.

Because I love you:

I’ll write novels about how much I do,
I’ll stay silent in the tender moments together.
Because I love you:
I’ll not judge you for things you say,
I’ll try and understand even if I don’t agree.

Because I love you:
I’ll stay up into the night to talk,
I’ll go to bed early to see you once again.

Because I love you:
I’ll make sure you always know I do,

Even if we’re angry, or sad.

Love doesn’t change, or shouldn’t at least,

From friends, to lovers, to best friends, it’s always the same.
