Because They Love Me

© Jenna Fowler
When I am sad, they comfort me.
When I am sick, they care for me.
When I misbehave, they discipline me.
Because they love me.

When I need help, they help me.
When I lose all faith, they help me regain it.
When I need forgiveness, they forgive me.
Because they love me.

When I am cold, they give me shelter.
When I need help with my homework, they help me the best they can.
When I am lost, they will come and find me.
Because they love me.

When I feel dumb, they let me know I am smart.
When I am made fun of, they tell me I am special.
No matter what happens, I know they will always be there.
Because they love me.

  • I'm a orphan. My father was killed by his enemies . But I'm lucky enough because I was not deprived from parental love. I live with my maternal uncle he treats me as his own child. My aunt also loves me very much. But I miss my dad a lot. I wish I could see him. But when he died I was in my mom's womb.
