#BecauseILoveYou I put you first every day,
Between asking you to tell me when you get home,
And focusing on you when I pray.
#BecauseILoveYou I try your favorite hobbies and foods,
Even when they don’t taste the best or make me smile like you do,
I make attempts to do what you want to do, all #BecauseILoveYou.
#BecauseILoveYou I open not only my heart but also my ears,
I comfort you and we hurt/laugh/scream together,
And I let you explore my fears.
#BecauseILoveYou I act on what I know is best,
I let us talk it out until we both need rest.
We can communicate without losing our minds, and I choose to listen #BecauseILoveYou.
#BecauseILoveYou I tell you what’s best for you to hear,
I can be truthful and I can respect you,
I hold nothing back,
Because being honest is being in the clear.
#BecauseILoveYou my hands are for caressing not bruising,
My lips are for kissing not wrong-doing,
And I respect your body the way I know you respect mine #BecauseILoveYou.
Because you love me, you don’t use piercing words and my heart stays intact,
You respect my boundaries and who I am as a woman,
You know my triggers, my downfalls, and when I need you you have my back.
Because you love me, “three words, eight letters” is the world’s greatest line,
We aren’t Chuck and/or Blair, but our stories are ours, and they are more than just fine.
You let me thrive in my element and do what I do, all because you love me.
Because you love me, we work. We are who we are for a reason,
We love with our minds, souls, and bodies, from season to season.
#BecauseILoveYou, we’re eternal. We’re able to simply breathe,
Our love cannot be broken because even when we are, we push through and we believe.
