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
