I Love You Because...

I love you because you make me, always want to smile,
Because I never need to ask you, to go that extra mile;
I love you because you make me, feel so safe and secure,
Because with you in my life, I know that I can endure.

I love you because you listen, to what I have to say,
Because you set aside time for me, each and every day;
I love you because you show me, how you really care,
Because I know if I look back, you'll be standing there.

I love you because you are, so thoughtful and so kind,
Because it is the best in others, you always try to find;
I love you because you are, so hardworking and so true,
Because you know when to stop, and also have fun too.

I love you because of the way, you openly love me,
Because you know just how to set, my inner spirit free;
I love you because of how I feel, whenever I'm with you,
Because of all those little things, for me you say and do.

I love you because of that dance, where we had our start,
Because by evening's end, you captured all of my heart;
I love you because by your side, is the place for me to be,
Because right here and now, you mean the world to me.

I Love You, Susan
