Why do you love me?
I really want to know
What it is that makes you want me
What makes our love grow?
Is it my maybe my eyes
That capture your heart and soul
Or the grasp of my hand
As we take a leisurely stroll?
Is it my soft lips
That I place on yours so eagerly
Or the embrace of my arms
Which comfort you tenderly?
Is it my mind
The conversations we have keep you intrigued
Or is it my heart
That’s allows you to live without being critiqued?
Is it security
You know I will never let you down
Or is the laughter we share
That we can banish each others frown?
Is it my charisma
Is this what keeps you wanting more
Or is it my ears
That listen when your feeling a little sore?
Why do you love me
Is it all the things I’ve just said
Or is the reason you love me
Because I understand what’s going on in your head?
