Not Because I Love You

Good morning beautiful,

 

How was your day?

Can we meet?

Did you eat?

 

I love you

It means I accept who you are

That I could never change you

 

 

Te amo

It means I know your dearest secrets

That I could never judge you

 

Je t’aime

It means I know it’s not going to be perfect

That I could never give up on you

 

 

It’s not because I love you I do all these things

 

 

It’s because I care about you

It’s because I respect your perfect imperfections

It’s because I trust that you won’t let me down

It’s because I support you in whatever it is

It’s because I accept that we’re not perfect, but we are for eachother

 

I love you….three words that don’t have to be said, but can still be expressed

 

Put your seatbelt on

Zip up your coat

Your shoe is untied

 

Goodnight beautiful
