Submitted love poem


Why do I love you?

Why do I love you?

Well it could be

Because you’re beautiful

Or that you’re funny


It could perhaps be

That you laugh at my jokes

Or that you chose me

When there are better blokes


It might be because

You’re caring and sharing

Or of modest disposition

Though cautiously daring


Why do I love you?

It could quite easily be

Your wisdom and intelligence

Or that you’re pretty and witty


But it doesn’t matter

What superlatives I apply

Or how long the list of traits

And attributes that I supply

You wouldn’t recognise them

The wonderful girl I see

Would be a stranger to you

Such is your modesty
