Because I Love You

Because I love you, I wait as your true love.

Because I love you, I pray for you not to force my religion on you, but because I believe in the power of prayer and I love you.

Because I love you, I focus on what’s keeping us together, not what’s tearing us apart.

Because I love you, I will guard your huge and honest heart.

Because I love you, I will nuture and care for you always.

Because I love you, I will help you to remember how to smile when you forget how to.

Because I love you, I put effort into you; us.

Because I love you, I will always find my way to you.

Because I love you, you will never experience love more than from me.

Because I love you, I accept every little detail that makes you you.

Because I love you, I can’t unlove you.

Because I love you, I will forever only love you.

Because I love you, I will make sure you will always feel like you are worth everything you are.

Because I love you, I love you so you never know how it feels to be loved so little.

Because I love you, I water you daily like a delicate, beautiful flower that I cannot let die.

Because I love you, I want to make you a permanent part of my life.

I saw that you were perfect and I loved you, but then I saw all your imperfections, and I loved you even more.

Because you love me, I become happy when you look at me.

Because you love me, you will always be in my heart and my mind.

Because you love me, I will never stop loving you, not even for a second.

Because you love me, I will treat you right with a level of decency that shouldn’t be humanly possible.

Because you love me, I am not lucky. I am blessed.

Because you love me, I am who I am.

Because you love me, I am.
