Because I Love You

Because I love you,

I live to make you happy

Knowing I’m the reason why

~

Because I love you,

I respect your decisions,

Even if you were to say goodbye.

~

I try to be as selfless as possible

Putting your heart and soul before my own.

And because I love you,

Your heart knows true love

And will never feel alone.

~

My heart aches to see your tears

Roll down your perfect cheek.

But because I love you

I’d wipe them away

And rock you back to sleep.

~

Because I love you,

I hang onto your every word

Like an adventurous cliff.

Every step gets closer, yet I’m so far

To fall into the abyss

That is your heart.

~

I’ll never make you doubt yourself,

Correct me if I do.

I’ll try, oh I’ll try, ‘til the day I die

Because I love you.

~

This love I have is like a flame

That refuses to be put out.

The sparks are kisses that can’t be tamed

To quench your mournful mouth.

~

Because I love you,

My future seems clear.

I feel no need to worry.

When it storms, when rain gets near

With you, I feel no hurry.

~

Hearing all your hopes and dreams,

I pray they all come true.

I’ll be standing by your side ‘til then

All because I love you.
