When You Ask Me Why!

My lady, I will tell you; I will tell you why, oh sure I will.
It’s not just that wide smile that melts the hearts of men
With well chiseled white teeth hidden behind the lips of an angel
It’s not just those big bright eyes that see beyond the masks of men
Neither is it those locks that hang firmly on that head

It’s not just your chocolate complexion or smooth spotless and flawless skin
Neither is it your breasts that stand firm and tender
It’s not the waist that rivals that of the wasp
Or the hips that sway gently from side to side
Neither is it the legs that look like they were curved from Greece

Yeah! Fair one – yeah
It has never been that shapely body
That makes all cloths on you
Look like they were handmade by Louis Vuitton

But it’s the beauty of your mind, the strength of your will,
It’s the tenderness of your affection; the warmth of your love
It’s the firmness of your character and your timeless virtues,
It’s your sense of identity and purpose
It’s your balance between tradition and the changing times
Your appreciation of the arts – the works of your hands

It’s your wisdom and your passion for learning
It’s your knowledge of history; an awareness of the present and a certainty about the future
Your respect for nature and your love for justice,
It’s your regard for the needy and less fortunate; the generosity and kindness of your heart,
Your confidence and humility; your courage and bravery
It’s the faith and hope you radiate
Above all, it’s your respect for the spirit world and the fear of God

So when you ask me why, I will tell you –
It’s the person I become when I am with you
It’s the man I hope to be
But most importantly what we could together become
And you are the reason why
