Why do I love you?

 

Why do I love you?

You took my fragile soul and nourished it back to health with your love,

You took my fragile ego and lifted it up with joy,

You took this aching body and held it close to you,

loving it,

You took this heart I gave to you with reluctance and cherished it dearly,

You told me it would be forever,

That is why I love you.
