"Because I Love You" Scholarship Entry by Mikayla Washam

Because I love you, I will fill your lungs with laughter.

 

Because I love you, I will not judge when you fail.

 

Because I love you, I will accept all of your flaws.

 

Because I love you, I will always have open arms when you need a hug.

 

Because I love you, I will not mind when my shirt is soaked with your tears.

 

Because I love you, I will care for you when you are sick.

 

Because I love you, I will learn to know and love your friends.

 

Because I love you, I will give you space when it is needed.

 

Because I love you, I will only speak uplifting words to, and about, you.

 

Because I love you, I will trust you.

 

Because I love you, I will be slow to anger.

 

Because I love you, I will keep your secrets.

 

Because I love you, I will tell the whole world of how amazing you are.

 

Because I love you, I will not harm you.

 

Because I love you, I will be someone who is worthy of receiving your love.
