Because I Love You

Because I love you

I’ll sacrifice myself

Because I love you

I’ll treat you like a Queen

Because I love you

I’ll listen to what you say

Because I love you

I’ll give of myself

 

Because I love you

I’ll try to make this work

Because I love you

I’ll help us work through this

Because I love you

I want you to be happy

Because I love you

I’ll let you go

 

Because I love you

I’ll hope you come back

          Because I love you

                   Because I love you

I love you

I won’t tell you what to do

I might advise

I might hope you do one thing

But I won’t tell you to obey

I won’t force it

 

I love you

I won’t abuse you

Hurt you in any way

Take advantage of you

To get what I want

 

I love you

I won’t isolate you

Demand from you

Separate you from your friends

From your family

Until I’m all you have left

 

Because I love you

          I’ll let you go

                   Hope you come back

 

I love you

And I’ll act like it
