Why I Love You
You ask me why I love you.
My answer is, " I just do!"
So for you I will try to say
What makes me feel this way.
Maybe it is your eyes of blue green,
Or the fact that you never treat me mean.
It might be the gentleness of your touch
That lets me know, oh, so much.
That big cupid's bow smile on your face,
Or maybe the laugh lines I like to trace.
Could it be your style, your charm, your wit,
I'd have to say it was all of it..
Your height, your brawn, your hairy chest
Are some of the things I like best.
Your rugged face, that smoldering look
Build the fire, set the hook.
The way you laugh without inhibition,
And the way you love without condition.
You make no promises that you can't keep.
You like to cuddle when you sleep,
You have such a big ole' heart.
You are educated and so smart,
You love your mama and you have faith.
These are things that really rate.
All these and more cause me to love you
But my answer still is, " I just do!"
