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

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
