Because You're You

There's something about you that inspires me,
much like the sun at night caressing the sea.
There's something about you that makes me want to be better;
a pirate sailing the oceans no matter the weather.

Because you are the person I always look up to,
when I'm lost, wandering, without a clue.
You are my picture perfect reflection,
standing by close at each intersection.

And I honestly don't know how you do it,
without ever really saying "I quit". (Although I guess I do.)
Because I see it everyday behind those eyes;
courage, hope, strength, someone who tries.

And yes, while I do know that we sometimes fight,
and most of the time you're the one who's right,
I also know that you are a hero, the real one,
the one who's always there when all is said and done.

So with that in mind, let me tell you this,
so that after I can give you a kiss.
I admire you,
I respect you,
and I love you.

I love you because you believe in my dream,
even though sometimes it makes you want to scream.

I love you because you taught me how to be strong
when everything around me seems to be going wrong.

I love you because you appreciate the little things,
not the lives of the rich, the queens, and the kings.

I love you for a million more reasons, but most of all,
I love you because you're you.
