Because I Love You

Because I Love You

Because I love you, I have endured the last 21 weeks.
Often facing each day, With tears streaming down my cheeks.

Because I love you, I found the strength to let you go.
Knowing in my heart, That we both needed to grow.

Because I love you, I somehow found a way,
To make it through the weeks, Counting down each and every day.

Because I love you, I hold you close within my heart,
Reminding myself daily, Of why we are apart.

Because I love you, I stand faithfully by your side,
Heart and soul soaring, With overwhelming pride.

And because I love you so much, I willingly face this uncertain life,
For I know that some would not, "Choose" to be a "Marine Wife"!
