I Love You Because

I love you because
of all that was

For what has been
and what came inbetween

What was once immature
seemed fleeting and unsure

Based upon my need
for your love to feed

Over time has grown
into what is known

As stable and mature
a love that shall endure

And will stand the test
as time throws it’s best

My need now for you
runs deep and is true

No matter what life does
I love you just because!
