WHY DO I LOVE YOU SO?
Why Do I Love You So?
Written by: Wilfred Charles Mellers, Sunday, December 20,2009 in Pattaya, Thailnad @ 8: 46 AM
Why do I love you so?
I don’t know, but each day it grows
Why do I need you so much?
Why can’t I live without your touch?
Is it really true that you love me?
In your possession my hearts only key
The love I have is so profound
I cannot breathe when you are not around
My chest tightens and my heart is pounding
I close my eyes and you angels are surrounding
I cannot stand to see the day
My nights are filled with gloom and dismay
My very soul to you I’m revealing
A Life with you would be so appealing
You are all that I can think of
You are my first and only true love
Why do I feel the way I do?
Is it simply because I love you?
My love I hope you can sense
My world blessed with a sweet experience
The hole in my heart you have mended
My life now you have extended
Nursed my soul back to health and fitness
You are a goddess and I an eyewitness
I love you more than any other would
By hell’s fire I stand with you if I could
Sacrifice my life for you to use
My immortal soul to you I would not refuse
The choir sings as a church bell ring
An angel starts to sing
I the stricken now my heart is well
Hopelessly in love with you I have fell
You ask why do I feel the way I do?
You ask why do you illuminate my day too?
You ask why do I only think of you?
It is very simple my empress, my queen I love true
