Because I Love Her

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.
