Because She Loved Me

I moved to Utah without really knowing a soul

The only two people I knew were my grandpa and grandma and man they are old

One day I met Glory and learned her life story

She's my 39 old cousin and she was so kind

She listened to the things that caused me pain

She helped me figure out what was wrong with my brain

Her love was so strong that I knew I could go on

She hugged me when I cried and picked me up when I felt like I would die

She made me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry

When I felt like giving up she told me to buck up 

To be loved felt so different and so familiar at the same time

She supported me in all of my dreams 

I never had a friend that was so willing to give to me

Never met a person that could be so selfess

You see healthy love is thinking of the other person

When you meet someone that is full of real love they don't want your life to worsen

You become better together and feel light as a feather

You speak openly without the worry of causing a storm

If you're feelings are hurt you go to the source

True love is open and can heal people who are broken 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
