Because We Love

#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.

Even when loving is tough, find love in your heart each and every day, love with an open heart, and love the world more than it loves you.
