Because I Love You, I Love You

Because I love you, I hear your cries 

And I use myself to dry your eyes

Because I love you, I make you laugh

Circumspectly leading you down the most joyous path 

Because I love you, I let you sing 

I’m content with the feeling your voice brings

Because I love you, I experience your pain

And I’m there to provide your strength again

Because I love you, I strive when you’re around 

Your presence itself, is profound

Because I love you, I treat you with respect 

That is what you deserve, so that is what you get 

 

But because I love you, is why I scold 

It’s your trust in me, that makes me bold

Because I love you, I fight for you to do better 

And because I love you, we can do that together 

Because I love you, I tell you the truth 

It may hurt, but I’m never uncouth 

Because I love you, I anticipate your smile

And it concerns me when it has been absent a while 

 

Because I love you, I can’t explain how much 

My love isn’t tangible 

So my words can’t be enough

 

And it doesn’t matter if you forget with the renewing of each day 

Because I love you, I will remind you in every way 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
