Because He Loves Me

Wedding

For My Husband on Valentine’s Day

The one who loves me. 

Lives with me.

And laughs with me.

You are not expected
To make me happy
But because you love me
I am happy
I smile
I laugh
And I play

You are not expected
To be my purpose for living
But because you love me
I have purpose
I am driven
I am accepted
And I am encouraged

You are not expected
To provide for me
But because you love me
I am provided for
I am safe
I am warm
And I am secure

You are not expected
To take care of my every need
But because you love me
My needs are met
I have a friend
I have a lover
And I have a confidant

You are not expected
To share my feelings
But because you love me
You understand my feelings
I can cry
I can scream
And I can isolate myself

You are not expected
To make me a priority
But because you love me
I am a priority
I am honored
I am respected
And I am adored

You are not expected
To cook for me
….. let’s not get carried away

I have no need to pressure you
With any ridiculous expectations
Because you go above and beyond
Any expectation I could ever have

Because you love me
