BecauseBecause you breath; I breath easy,
Because you exist,
I will sleep sound tonight.
And because your brown eyes burn into me and
Strip me of my sanity
I go onBecause you read; I read more often,
Because you can hold a conversation about the works of Blake and Wilde,
I will finish Tolstoy tonight.
And because your hand can lay upon my chest and
Make my heart beat to no unrest
I go on
Because you told me about your God; I told you all about my own,
Because of that place you think you’ll go when you die,
I will kneel in prayer tonight.
And because through you I realize my own lack of worldliness and
I melt in each and every kiss
I go on
Because you watched the election; I watched every last debate,
And because of our differences in opinion,
I realize we may not always see eye to eye.
And because you pulled me by the hand and
tried to make me understand
I fell in love with you.
Because you feel the music; I explained to you my dreams,
And because you understood what I meant,
The record player spins on and on,
And because you inspire me-
And because I love the sound of your voice,
And because I quiver when your near,
And because and because and because . . .
I am yours now and always.
