because I love you

Sun, 10/29/2017 - 01:15 -- ajezin1

A four-letter word

Some so eager to say

That one little word

I so often turned away

 

 

I love you.

 

 

 

 

I couldn’t say it

Too afraid to face the heartbreak

To make a connection,

I thought complete

Only to end like the others

In an archive of lost loves

 

I couldn’t expose my heart again.

To repeat the cycle

Of love given, then gone, and lost

until I was gone with it

 

You came

unexpected.

And stayed when I needed you most.

 

You gave me more than a word

You gave me compassion

understanding

support

respect

my best friend

And I gave you the same

 

You make me proud to love

Someone like you

Who is kind to everyone,

Without expecting anything in return

 

I am my best self with you on my side

You make the world a better place

By just being alive

 

Know how much I care

And appreciate what you do

You are amazing

I want you to know this

I want to finally say it

because I love you

This poem is about: 
Our world
