Because You Loved Me

There were days when you told me I am the girl for you
There were cries of happiness that I found someone like you
You saw my strength when I was weak
You heard my voice when I couldn’t speak
You saw the best there was in me
This lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith because you believed in me
I am everything I am because you loved me

There were hours that just went on for days
When alone we counted on chances to meet again
Both of us built a hope, patience and love
That could bring us back together in time
But I lost my faith and you gave it back to me
And said, “No star is out of reach”
I felt so warm with your words
Things went well because you loved me

There were moments of Gold I will always cherish
There were nights of endless pleasure I want to treasure
And there were flashes of light I want to forget
There were things I will never do again
But then again, they would always seem right
Because you stood by me and I stood tall
I am grateful for each day you gave me
Because I had your love all for myself

There were nights when the wind was friendly
There were days when the sun was so cruel
That all my unknown tears turned to ashes
My eyes were drying up forever
That with oceans afar and in love
I was in despair, wanting to meet you
Time tested our patience and we fought against it
We were together because you loved me so much

Distance may cause many a tear and bring a fear
But our love is clear and it will never disappear
No matter the miles in queue
No matter our times together are few
I will always preserve our deep and sincere love
May be I don’t know too much
But I know this much is true
We will always be each other’s dear
So together, we can make it through
To look back one day and see how time flew
And I will know, I was blessed because you loved me


  1. There is a common-ity in love, feeling and human emotion. We are strangers but united by human concerns. We are bound by the bond of love, affection, understanding and empathy. There is no unfeeling for the feeling of the love.

    You’ve experienced a great love-- story. It’s everything. It’s a beautiful feeling, beautiful and heavenly feeling—they say. And love finally is faith—I believe. Cherish your life.

    1. Love is in the air.
      Thanks for your beautiful comment!

  2. A sweet poem, Yeshi. Wishes for you two. What about the first line? Shouldn't it be,"You are the girl for me." May be I am wrong. I'm telling you what I feel by the way. So, don't mind. Keep writing. :)

    1. Thank you :)
      And thanks for noticing the mistake. That was really a silly mistake.
