The Reason - Poem by Rosa Lin

You are the reason for the smile on my face.
But at the same time, the tears that run down my cheeks.
You are the reason I breathe each day.
But at the same time, cause me to become breathless.
You are the reason why I laugh each day
With all the little things you do and say.
But at the same time you make me hurt
With all the little things you do and say.
You are the reason I survive each day.
Every bitter thought, every rude remark.
You are the reason I keep pushing myself
Through thick and thin, the light and dark.
You are the reason why I dream, hope, and carry on.
You are my reason for fighting strong.
You are the reason for my world
When everything seems so wrong, when everything is wrong.
You are the reason for my heart
Even though it's not complete anymore
You are responsible for causing me pain
But I still can't help this feeling.
You are the reason, my heart beats on
And also when it pounds so fast
You are the reason why I get weak in the knees
And feel as though I'd collapse.
You are the reason why I get out of bed each day
Even though I'm reluctant to do so
You are the reason I try to be happy
Just so you won't worry about me
You are the reason why I hold back tears
Choke back words and hide my feelings
Because I'm afraid that you'll think differently
You are the reason why I hold my head up high
Walk everything off, and strive
You are the reason for my ambitions and my goals
But at the same time all my failures and struggles
You are the reason why I still keep calm
Or try to at least.
You are the reason for my thoughts
You are the reason why I think before I speak
Act upon my actions and realize the consequences.
You are the reason, you are my reason.
Do you have a reason?
