Because I Love Her - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Because I love her,
I will work with zeal;
I will be the breadwinner,
Doing the job so well.

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

Because I love her,
I won't hurt her feelings;
I won't be cruel and brutal,
I shall never cause her pain.

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

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

Because I love her,
I don't want her getting tired;
I'll help her carry the load,
Since time has not expired.

Because I love her,
I'll protect her all the time;
I'll keep her safe and sound,
With security so prime.

Because I love her,
Hers are small discretions;
So I will make it sure,
There'll be no big decisions.

Willing to offer sacrifice,
Even if I succumb to wear and tear;
I'll go with her to a grocery store,
Because I love her.

    Willing to offer sacrifice,
    Even if I succumb to wear and tear;
    I'll go with her to a grocery store,
    Because I love her.........a great sacrificing love...... bereft of egoistic attitudes. love should be like that.
    it is the ideal of love which you hve written and practising. thank u dear poet. tony
