I Love You Because... - Poem by TP Sage

I love you because

You laugh at the things that make you mad
You cry when you're sad but you let me think I'm helping to make it better
You're not afraid to be vulnerable
You feel safe when you are with me.

I love you because

You are beautiful because you know you are beautiful
You wear old sweat pants, a ratty t-shirt and a baseball cap to the store, but still touch up your makeup first
You aren't afraid to try something new, and you get my lazy ass up to try it to
You know how to tell me NO, and make me think it's my idea.

I love you because

You dream big dreams, but they always include me
You know that I need you more than you need me, and you never take advantage of that
You hurt when I hurt
You let me be angry when you've been wronged but you don't let me act upon it till I've settled down.

I love you because

You make me feel like I am the only man you've ever loved.
You understand that I don't understand my emotions like you do yours
You always let me open the new jar of pickles
You know that I need time alone and it has nothing to do with how much I love you

I love you because

You don't tell me everything, but you never lie to me
You don't play games....unless it's in the bedroom
You let me say I'm sorry even when you know I have no idea what I'm apologizing for.
You understand that my love for you would consume me if you let it

I love you because...
I just do.
