Why I Love Him

I love him because he's strong
I love him because he's bold
I love him because he's such a sight to behold
I love him from his head to the sole's of his feet
I love him becasue he's funny
I love him because he's deep
I run out of finger trying to count the many ways I love him
I run out of time trying to explain the reasons why
I love him because he's mesmerizing
I love him because his eyes are so enticing
He can stare beyond the fake smiles and laughs
He can make me smile and he can make me mad
Webster didnt define enough words to describe him
God broke the mold the day he designed him
I love him because his heart beats with mine
I love him because he knows my spot right next to my spine
I love him because I feel so safe in his arms
I love him because at night he lays beside me and keeps me so warm
I love him because of the way he walks, a little bit pigeon toed
I love the little wrinkle in his brow right above his nose
My love for him goes deeper than any sea and higher than the heavens
The light of my love for him will still shine even when we're old
I love him because of the love he has for me
I love him because he was designed especially for me
I love him because of the way he holds my hand
He makes me feel like a little school girl all over again
I love him because he still gives me butterflies when he looks at me
I love him because his love is unconditional
I love him because I can be myself with him
He never judges me. My flaws are what makes him love me more
He never second guesses my love because he knows
that it's genuine without any conditons
I love him because at night sometimes when I know he's fast asleep
I find myself starring at him in amazement that God chose him for me!
