Because. By Grace Aquino


Because you told me I was beautiful.

Because you gave me hope.

Because you encouraged me in all my goals.

Because you held my hand when I was scared.

Because you communicated with me.

Because you told me the truth.

Because you told me “you can do it.”

Because you gave me the chance.

Because we made it work.

Because we faced challenges together.

Because everything you did for me, I did the exact same for you.
