I love you because you are to be loved
Mighty and meek
Who will fail to appraise
The tenderness within your strength
Care entwined in comeliness
The way you build up what could break
As though your hands were made for that
Putting pieces where they belong
With loving words, only God can inspire
Eloquent in truth
Ardent in service
Your praises ring loud without your reach
Returning with honor and laurels bearing your name
You are young and strong and aware that you’re blessed
Inspiring hope with your engaging grace.
When my eyes enlock with yours
I see these and more and wonder if you know
The beauty and strength that lies within your soul
A safe haven awaiting unraveling.
I love you because there’s no other way than to give you all my love.
