Because I Love You
Because I love you, take my hand,
whenever you feel cold,
And feel the warmth that I have for you,
A fire bright and old.
Because I love you, please don’t stop.
If you should cry, or hate, or more,
Then I would stay and lay astray,
For you forevermore.
Because I love you, I would walk,
Across jagged stones, with broken bones,
If it meant that I could hear you talk
In your honeysuckle tones.
Because I love you, I need your smile,
Whether it be with me or not.
For it is your joy that I’ve lived and thrived,
And for your happiness I’ve fought.
Because I love you, your mind is art,
And more than just a brain.
It is your breathing, beating heart,
And beauty from life’s pain.
Because I love your spirit,
Bright, and bold, and free,
I’ll love you for your gentle mind,
Even if you’re not with me.
