Why I Love You.... - Poem by phumudzo mapila
Well I sat this afternoon and asked myself why it is that I think I love you
I was tempted to say I love you because of the way you make me feel.
The butterflies...that fuzzy feeling in my stomach when you say 'amo-te'
Then I thought I was maybe inlove with the idea of being with such an awesome guy.
Fun, assertive, responsible and yet young at heart.
O' yet again I wanted to say I love you because you are 'smoking hot' lol I know I never told you that before.
I wanted to say I love you because I have known you for sometime and I loved how we get along so well, and how we had a fun, beautiful friendship.
I wanted to say I love you because you are driven, hardworking, have a vision and direction that no one can detter you from.You have great focus, and I totally saw a future with us.
I wanted to say I love because you know who you are,
Never second guessing yourself...
And are secure in all that you stand for.
Or maybe that you are such an amazing gentleman,
treating a girl like an absolute princess..
very tuned in, like you heard a dad whisper to you just how much she is worth...
I could say I love you because you are a great friend.
Always there for your buddies..
Always willing to give a helping hand.
Oh, how I wanted to say I love you because you love kids,
and so do I.
And how you would make a superhero daddy one day.
I wanted to say I love you because you have a heart to serve.
To spend yourself for the good of others.
With no expectations or demands.
Most importantly, I wanted to say I love you because you love GOD so much,
Because you are sold out for Christ.
Nothing is more attractive than a son who knows and is led by His all knowing, all powerful father.
But then it hit me that loving a person does not start with because...
but it is however a choice than 1 makes.
For me, loving you simply means..
I make the choice and commitment to love you without the 'because'
and in every way I pray for God to everyday help me to love you the way that he loves you.
and this brings nothing but joy to me.
I love you...
