Why Me



She told me "Emmanuel, I love you"
"I need you"
I said "How can you love a person like me"
"How can you fall so deep for a person you barely even know?"
These were words coming from star crossed lovers
Two souls intertwined by what society call "fate"
She said "Be mine forever"
"Hold me and never let go"
I said "How can I hold that which I barely even know"
"How can I love you in the same way as you love me?"
"You're always smiling, ever so caring"
"Never hesitating, always headstrong"
'Why me?"
"Why me?"
Then she said "I love you for your heart"
"I love you because you are kind, caring, and honest"
"I love you because you are Emmanuel"
