j is just because


just because you come to me, in a moment in an instant when i call upon you

just because you understand my fears and my wrong emotions, and you forgive

just because you dare to believe in me when all of my actions are so vain

just because you care for me when i don't even care about myself

just because you hold me up when i fall over and over

just because you want for me, things i don't even dream about

just because you saw me and knew me even before my time

for all these reasons and more i love you and you love me just because

  1. Beautifully written; I like the last line, I love you and you love me, just because. And the line that God cares for us even when we don't care about ourselves. Very nicely done!

  19. "Just" is one of my favorite words and something I have to delete time and time again from my manuscripts. I love that poetry allows you to get away with anything, even an abundant use of the word 'just'--lovely work.
