Do I Know Why I Love Thee? - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

If love were to grow vastly on trees
I could pluck the fruits of our love for free
It all starts with a kiss and I tremble
In full moonlight as our warm lips assemble
The sparkle in your eyes holds the answer
The softness in your voice each day matters
O love! Do I know why I love thee?
For you, my love will always bow on two knees

I may not know all the reasons I strongly plea
Maybe it is the neat reality of destiny and chemistry
But long before our kiss took its rightful place
I wondered about touching your beautiful face
With my long ears to the ground
I felt but only love when you were around
O love! Do I know why I love thee?
Maybe it is the sweet complexity of your personality

Though we sometimes tend to disagree
I know with you I never get critically angry
To me you are very special
You make me feel immortal
Your presence, your laughter, your lips of wine
Day by day I consume your love before I dine
O love! Do I know why I love thee?
Maybe your love is my only hearts key

It is not just your looks
Nor the fact you are a groovy cook
Maybe underneath my duvet cover
I discovered you make the best lover
Or perhaps your smile with the twinkle in your eye
And with your kissing sprees I tend to fly quite high
O love! Do I know why I love thee?
Do I really know why you are my sweet honey bee?

And I have loved and loved dearly before
Long before you came knocking on my door
Love is Love, out with old and in with the new
Each day I yearn so dearly of being with you
Maybe our love will blossom in time
Maybe our love may endlessly rhyme
O love! Do I know why I love thee?
O love! One thing I know is I do love thee
