Because I love you

Because I love you 

I became a better me 

How can I love you properly 

If I don't take care of myself

Because I love you 

I prayed for you 

So your spirit may be strong 

To know that you can go on

Because I love you

I silenced myself 

Not striping my identity in any way

Just to hear you 

Everyone deserves an ear 

With thoughtful words followed 

Because I love you 

I make sure you smile and have some fun 

Life does go by 

I want to make sure you had one you enjoyed

Because I love you 

After we fight 

Before bed, I'll make sure we make up

So your mind will be at peace and you may rest

Because I love you 

I want nothing more 

To understand the phases of your life

And consider your well being
