I am the Best Version of Me

Because I love you I wake up every morning thankful

Thankful that I see you asleep and at peace

Thankful to kiss you good morning

Thankful to have you to complain about waking up so early with

Thankful to kiss you good-bye as I head to work and you head to school

Thankful to have you through our best and worst

Because I love you we communicate with ease

Whether we need eggs on the way home

Whether one of us has hurt the other's feelings

Whether we are having a bad day

And especially when we are happy

Because I love you I respect you

I respect your decisions

I respect your body

I respect your opinions

I respect your goals

I respect your life

Because I love you I am excited for you to grow

Your friendships grow and I am excited to hear you talk about your friends

Your opportunities grow and I am excited to see you take hold

Your mind grows and I am blessed to hear your ideas

Because I love you I trust you

Trust is hard and I will work every day to make trust more concrete

I trust you day in and day out

Together or apart

I trust you with my heart 

To take gentle steps and hold my heart in your hands with respect and grace

Because I love you I am excited to come home to you

I am excited to come home into your open arms

I am excited to come home to hear about your day

I am excited to share in your frustrations

I am excited to share in your excitations 

I am excited to share in the life we have made

Because I love you I am at peace

We kiss goodnight and I am blessed

Because you love me I am the best version of me
