Why do I love you?

You ask me why do I care?
You said you don’t understand
Why when the world is spiraling out of our control
I would still trust in you

How do I explain love?
How do I make you understand?

That love has no reason
And feeling has no sense

I could give you a million reasons why I love you
I could tell you a million times that I do

I could tell you I love you because of how your smile warm me in a room full of strangers when we first met

I could tell you that I love you because of how you always find me in a crowd immediately, when I was lost in a sea of people

I could tell you that I love you because of how your eyes rest so softly and intently on me whenever you thought I wasn’t looking

But it wouldn’t make any difference,
because it wouldn’t change the only reason that matters to me

I love you just because you are you.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
