Ph: Love: I Love You Because

I love you because
The mystery of your being
Fascinates me.

Every day you are
A rabbit pulled out of a hat
That seemed empty before.

And this is no trick
I know it is just you
Without effort or ruse.

Perhaps any soul
That let me get this close
Would have this same magic?

But that doesn't matter
(And this is like magic)
For I know you are mine.

Such a balm for my soul
That at times I forget
The wounded warrior.

Many poets have written about this magic called-love. Aristotle said, a single soul that inhabits two bodies. Yours is simply a balm for the soul. It is fantastic.... well done!

Brian, this poem is exquisitely loving, with a mystery of sublime fascination. Your expression of love for this person is stated so freely and independently - so magical - so full of gratitude! - For I know you are mine - is so thoughtfully confident and filled with self-confidence. So much what a woman wants in a man. - Such a balm for my soul - soothing past hurts from other relationships in the past. Great write I love it. RoseAnn
