Reason

Why do you love me?

I love you for your...

Twinkling eyes
Warm embrace
Knowing smile
Enraptured chase

Tender heart
Soft caress
Coffee confessions
Skin tight dress

Unchained passion
Unending faith
Magical moments
Dancing grace

Kindred soul
Taken chance
Beautiful compassion
Burning romance

Eternal friend

All of these,
None of these.

Love doesn't need a reason,
for what happens when that reason is gone?

This was such a joy to read! I agree, it doesn't need a reason. When a friend of mine and myself start a little argument about nonsense, we always conclude that we don't need a reason to be with each other- we simply just want to!

Beth said...

Fun! I can think of a million reasons why I love my family, my students, my teachers, my friends.

I love your writing, too. Just because.

Nancy said...

Hmmm, good thought.

blueviolet said...

Are you publishing these? They are THAT good.

Betsy said...

I think all these reasons will stand the test of time...well, maybe not the skin tight dress, but the rest will! LOL!

Your wife is a lucky woman. My husband loves me because...... That's it, because. Because why? His answer is "You know, because" A man of few words, this man that I love for so many reasons other than because.

lakeviewer said...

Love just is. I enjoyed reading your definitions.

Amy said...

Love this one too!!!
I think I am addicted to your writing! Is there a program for that? Wish I had a book of your poetry and stories.

Goofball said...

oooh I love the coffee confessions!!!!


And yes, love doesn't need a reason, although I think we all have unconciously some reasons like your beautiful list. Don't we?

JeffScape said...

Can't put my finger on it, but this stanza pops out:

"Tender heart
Soft caress
Coffee confessions
Skin tight dress"

It rocks.

Mariana Soffer said...

Beautifull text!
The reason can never be gone because the real why of loving someone it is because the person is the person it is and no other, and no different from itself. So that could never change

lettuce said...

yeah - its beyond the rational!

Ben said...

Cool, I'll have to check those people out. Thanks for the tip. I'm always in the mood to read some good verse.

Jaime said...

beautiful.

that was great

Cindybrown said...

Wonderful as always:)

The Dark Lord said...

Blessed are the eyes of the beholder who loves.. for in such beholding resides a million flattering reflections.. To the true beholder, thus, do they fade, or are they too deeply entrenched in their soulful abyss?!

What an absolutely delightful verse.. Was a great read!

The Dark Lord said...

Btw.. I think the Saturday before last was your B'Day.. Sorry for such a late response, but wish you a "Happy Belated Birthday"!

California Girl said...

Hit 40 said...

Beautiful! You have a wonderful loving relationship. Maybe, you could frame this as a gift to her.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

That was absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the smile... :)

babYpose said...

Wonderful message!

The Retired One said...

You are so right.
It is what it is.
Don't try to figure it out.
Just relish in it, every single moment of it.
Sometimes I glance over at my husband and my heart stops a beat still.
We are going on 38 years of marriage and 41 years of knowing one another.
Love is such a mystery...that is what makes it so wonderful, isn't it?

markborsha said...
