Because I Love Her - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Because I love her,
I will work neath the sun;
I will be the breadwinner,
Getting the nice job done.

Because I love her,
I'll be loyal and kind;
Ignoring temptation,
Never leave her behind.

Because I love her,
I'll warm her in the rain;
I won't be cruel and brutal,
I'll never cause her pain.

Because I love her,
I will give her no harm;
I'll always let her feel
My embrace sweet and warm.

Because I love her,
She deserves due respect;
I'll understand her fault,
For no one's born perfect.

Because I love her,
I won't let her get tired;
I'll help her carry the load,
Since time has not expired.

Because I love her,
I'll shield her all the time;
I'll keep her safe and sound,
During the vilest clime.

Because I love her,
Hers is small discretion;
So I will make it sure,
There's no big decision.

Willing to suffer even if I
Succumb to wear and tear;
I'll go with her to a grocery store,
Yes, because I love her.

    A beautiful poem of love well executed.

    A most sincere, touching love poem, using the phrase, 'Because I love her' hypnotically, effectively.
    I like 'There's no big decision'.

    I'll go with her to a grocery store,
    Because I love her.

    Yes, this is what any woman really needs - she needs her man`s support and help not only in hard times or when committing great deeds, but when dealing with the daily routine of her life as well. This is how real love reveals itself. It is an outstanding poem. I love it.
