Because I Love You
I give a piece of myself away
Each day
I put my hopes and dreams to the side
Put them on the back burner
A candlelight extinguished to be replaced with the
Fire burning in my heart for you
I break myself because I love you
I mistreat myself because I love you
You are my stars and moon
But what am I to you?
I stay silent because I love you
I suffer alone because I love you
My world is no better than death
Without you
My gap-toothed smile only opens and
Blossoms like marigolds in our garden for you.
I stand for you
I spread my arms wide like wings
Only for you
My back breaks
My heart aches
Because I Love You
I love you
I love you
I love you
