Reasons Why I Love You

Posted on 22nd February 2011 in love

I love your face
Your smiling eyes
Your bottomless heart
Your beautiful soul

I love you for your courage
For the depths to which you care
I love that you have compassion
And that there’s nothing you wont share

I love that I believe you
Without question, without doubt
I love that you believe in me
It feels like you know me inside and out

I love your patience, and understanding
The depth of your kindness, no matter what
I love that you seem unbreakable
Even though I know you’re not

I love your gentlessness
Which is only rivalled by your strength
I love your sense of rightness
And that you talk nothing to me at length

I love your optimism
That because you want to, you believe
I love your generosity
That you give not to receive

Your friendship is an honour
And I hope this little blog will show you
You are the kindest soul I’ve ever met
And it humbles me to know you

    The kind of love that makes you write poems like that is definitely one worth investing in I say :-)

    Beautifully written poem about someone you obviously think the world of and who has been a good friend to you and who knows how you tick. I have a suspicion who it is … does he tweet by any chance? xx

      Thanks Sandy, now you have to say who you think because to the best of my knowledge he doesn’t tweet! xx

    That’s really lovely. I’m sure whoever you wrote it for will be touched by the sentiment.

    At first I thought you was writing this to one of your children, but I’m presuming your partner? Lovely words x
