Why I Love You


You ask me why I love you, dear... and I can only say...
It is because you are sincere... In every little way... Because
the brightness of your eyes... Is like a shining light... That
reaches through the darkest skies... And beautifies the night
...I love you for the words you speak... When you and I are
glad... And for the tears upon your cheek... Whenever life is
sad... Your kiss is like a thousand charms... Your sigh is like a
song... And in the comfort of your arms... My heart is young
and strong... I love you dear, because you are... So wonderful
and sweet... And like an everlasting star... That makes my
life complete.
