Because I love you...

Because I love you, 

we will have small arguments

that we will learn from. 

Because I love you, 

you will not strike me, 

you will stroke my cheek instead.

Because I love you, 

we will speak to each other

because communication is key. 

Because I love you, 

we will accept our flaws.

Because I love you, 

you will not call me hateful things

that would make me lie awake crying until midnight. 

Because I love you, 

we will hold each other tightly. 

We will walk through the fire, 

and extinguish our blazing flames.

We will say that we love each other, 

to remind us that we are together and alive.

And most of all,

we will trust each other whether we are together or apart. 

And I will do this for you,

Because I love you.
