“Because I love you”
As if it were all that mattered.
I struggled -
Looking for more of a reason.
Your reason for staying
At my side -
No matter how hard I push you away.
Your reason for smiling
Every single time
You catch my eye when I walk in the room.
Your reason for sacrificing
So much time -
For my sake, for my happiness.
Your reason for following me
So I won’t be alone,
So I won’t feel lonely and unwanted.
Your reason for fixing me
When I can’t remember why I still exist -
When I can’t see where the stars are in the sky
You saved me
When I didn’t really need saving.
But who will help you?
I will do my best.
I will stay with you,
At your side.
I will smile at you,
To show you I’m happy to see you.
I will spend time with you,
Make you happy, too.
I will be there when you feel hopeless,
When the world is laughing without you.
I will give you everything you’ve given me,
Because I love you, too.
