I Haven'T The Choice - Poem by Danny Speicher

I breathe in because I haven’t the choice
Ah, though, the action, it may be pleasant
I breathe this breath to give me strength and life
I breathe for the day you might be my wife

I work hard, because I haven’t the choice
Though I get fulfillment from the effort
I work hard for a life for you and I
I work for our future home by and by

I seek Christ because I haven’t the choice
Though the discovery is exciting
I seek Christ to find out how to love you
I seek Christ to make my heart always true

I love you because I haven’t the choice
Though the love soothes any pain, any day
I love you, dear, because I know your heart
I love you when you’re near and when apart

I love you because I haven’t the choice
Though I know I’ve written it once before
I love you once wasn’t enough to say
I love you and long to say it each day

I love you because I haven’t the choice
And if in a hundred years I still say
I love you, Love, I love you more each day
I love you will be what I long to say
