because I love you

I know it sounds cliche

but it's the way I feel

not because of your

bulging biceps

or brawny tough-guy appeal

(I know you don't have that)

because of the way

you laugh at my corny jokes

and make comments

about working at

McDonald's for minimum wage

because you're there

when you didn't have to be

when I needed someone

the most in my life

and you stepped up

to the challenge

so why? you ask
