Because I Love You

Be you sick or sad or just mad at me

Every time, I’ll stay and you’ll ask at me

“Could you tell me why you don’t go away?”

And I give the same answer every day

Unremitting, you wonder and I explain

Still you question why I remain

Every time my response is the same refrain

 

“I Love You.”

 

Let you need to leave for some other task

Or desire some time alone to relax,

Venture to ask why I let you be free

Every time it’s because I love thee.

 

Yet if you act without thought for your life

Or use pain to halt your emotional strife

Unrelentingly I will stop your knife

 

Because I Love You.
