What It Means to Love

Because I love you 

I won't hurt you,

And because you love me 

You'll do the same.

Love is a two way street 

It is something that is earned 

not bought.

Something that is gained, 

Not just given.

Because I love you

I'll tell it like it is,

And because you love me

You'll do the same.

Tell me when I look beautiful 

Tell me when I'm wrong 

Tell me when I have a stain 

Tell me when you want to be alone 

and I'll tell you the same 

Because I love you

I'll tell you every day, 

And because you love me 

You'll do the same. 

I love you.

Please be safe. 

How are you today?

I'll pay for dinner 

You're a goof ball 

Because I love you

I will be patient, 

And because you love me

You'll do the same. 

I'll try to be patient, 

Even when I want to yell. 

I'll try to smile, 

Even when I want to cry. 

I won't let problems define us, 

because love is too powerful. 

Because I love you

I will not leave you,

And because you love me, 

You'll do the same.
