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.
