Because I love you, it isn't really about the infatuation phase

It's not the falling,

It's the catching.

It's making sure you're good and asking every day. 

Because I love you, it's not about the dates 

Or the gifts, 

Or the compliments, 

It's about the time you give, and feeling like your presence is a present. 

Because I love you, I'll always be content just laying in bed with you, watching documentaries. 

Because I love you, I want to learn from you. 

Because I love you, you'll always be my favorite conversation. 

Because I love you, you aren't my whole world, but you are a very big part of it. 

Because I love you, it's not about you saying it back 

It's about making sure you know how I feel at all times

If I'm mad, 

or upset

or that I love you, you will know these things.

Because I love you, your dreams are my dreams. 

Because I love you, I will support every goal you set, and be prouder with each goal met. 

Because I love you, it's not about receiving, it's about giving 

And just seeing your smile is better than any thank you. 

Because I love you, I will watch over you

Even when you're grumpy today

Or angry with me

Or didn't eat yet 

Because I love you, you'll be the first to hear news. 

Because I love you, I won't stay mad. 

Because I love you, I won't hold back. Because I love you, I'll always strive to improve, not just for me, but also for you. 

Because I love you, you will see me at my worst, and you will see me at my best, and I'll trust you with both. 

Because I love you, I now know what unconditional love means.
