Many times you asked me why I love you,
And I mumbled some insufficient reply.
I knew you would not believe me,
Whether I tell the truth or a lie.
I felt you would laugh at me,
I felt so stupid having to explain.
My word should be enough when I tell you,
You are my man.
I love you because when I look at you I see me.
I see purity, greatness, strength and humility.
I see you beyond the brutal wrapping,
Illuminating in yellowish-white lighting.
I see you as my best friend.
I see You.
That’s why I love you.
And beyond all that,
The reason I know my love is true,
Is that no words can really profess
The rawness and simplicity of my feelings for you.
So many times I tried to explain
And every time I felt like I failed,
But it is you who fail to understand
What a selfless love is from a woman.
Not once have I heard you say
The most beautiful words I can hear.
All the while I kept whispering them in your ears.
