I love you
Because you are blue-eyed and clean-limbed
And because every morning I awaken to your kiss
as you run your fingers through your hair.
And you rock your heels when you’re pleased
And swear at little things, and grin at hurdles.
I love you because of the man you are today
and the man you will become.
And because of that small boy you must have been
Who still looks out of your eyes when you smile
And speaks with your voice when you dream.
I love you because, when life has hurt you
With some foul thrust or lightning dart, bitter as rind
You put your head in my lap and say: “I need you. Comfort me!”
I love you because you came one Summer day
And caught my small heart up, and flooded it with ecstasy
Fusing my every thought, my every mood, with yours
Until we conquered time, and space and pain
And dwelt above the stars, one and alone together
I love you because you love me and tell me so
In words and deeds that glow
With love’s bright fire.
And never forget before have I loved
And never forget again will I love
Anyone as I love you
Because you are you,and I am I
And that is the way of it.
