That's Why

Your smile brings joy to my heart.
Bonding so tight that death couldn't break us apart. Loving each other more than the world itself.
So, nothing could come between us including bad health. Whenever you hurt, I feel the same pain.
Wiping your tears in a hurry at the same time wishing it would rain.
Throughout all the cloudy days you continue to be my sunshine.
You complete me as a whole and give me a sane state of mind.
For my head you're the brain, for my heart you're the veins.
For my body you're the main arteries that my heart needs to maintain.
Without these things I cannot live.
That's why I cherish the love and support that you give. That's Why! That's why.

    One person is never ALL WE NEED. No one operates without split motives…except Jesus our Good Shepherd. Psalm 23 and Ezekiel 34.

    We are not “completed” by any person under the sun. Unwise to have such expectations of flesh, crossed purposes and fear of man, But loving the vulnerable, honest, direct and needy can become a worthy vocation. Read fifth chapter of First corinthians Letter from Paul.
