Because I Love You

You must be here to teach me
A catalyst of such sorrow
Only because I love you
How I’d like to know

Or do I really love you
As much as I’d want
For reasons so selfish
You don’t get on the ball

At a distance you keep
Close enough to see
Yet too far away to touch
Reasons I don’t follow

No word has been given
So your needs I don’t know
Love has become thwarted
No explanation at all

What are you trying to teach me
For what lessons did I request
In another lifetime distant
That my mind doesn’t recall

Yet I remember what love is
The will to let go
Then his grace will carry me
Beyond all my sorrow

And in that state of surrender
I must watch you go
Because I love you
How I’ll never know
