Because I love you

Because I love you



I will catch you when you fall

I will sweep you off your feet

I will protect you through it all

Would you do the same for me?


She holds my hand when I feel defeat

She keeps me smiling when times are tough

She makes me giggle when I need it most

She keeps me warm

And I would do the same for her


He makes me take my meds

He gets me out of bed

He takes me to every visit

He is there when I feel weak

He is there when I feel strong

He is my backbone through this sickness

And I would do the same for him


Mommy give the best advice

Mommy protect me night and day

Mommy wipe my tears away when daddy is away

Mommy check for monsters under the bed

Mommy kisses me on my head

Mommy tells me it’s alright

And I would do the same for her


Daddy sends letter while he’s away

Daddy keeps the bad guys away

Daddy calls every night

Daddy never gives up the fight

Daddy protects us from afar

And I would do the same for him


We help each other out

We we never let them down

We watch each other’s backs

We will be there in a flash


Why? Because I love you
