Why Do I Love You

Why Do I Love You?
©2011 C. Brent Cloyd

When I tell you that I love you
Hurriedly you ask, tell me why?
You laugh when in dismay I sigh

Dare now, listen to some reasons
Obsess and parse them if you please

I love because God gave you to me

Life is good when I see your smile
Observe your wittiness and style
Valuable are your hugs so snug
Each time you travel I feel a tug

You bring pride and make my heart dance
Overawed I choose to love, not perchance
Utmost I love because you are you.

    just saw your note to Denise about rankings of same numbers. That is not the case. Having done some contests I know tha the no. 1's or any other equal no's. are placed according to the the rotation in which they were received. All same no's are presumed to be equal in the eyes of the judge. And I like your above poem very much. Love, Joyce
