About You

© Emily Petro

The other day you asked me
"Why do you love me?"
to which I replied "Because I do."
that was not entirely true
you see, there are many reasons
too many to name them all
so I'll just list a few

your hair
your eyes
how you're mine

your voice
your laugh
how you smile

when you talk like you know it all
how I know you'll catch me if I fall

your lips
your touch
the warmth it brings

your smell
your strength
just about everything

It may seem crazy to you
cause you don't seem to get why I do
but darling I love you
That's nothing but the truth
