    (Davies - H. Engelman)

    Why do I love you?

    I love you not only for what you are
    But for what I am when I'm with you.

    I love you not only for what you've made of yourself
    But for what you're making of me.

    I love you for ignoring the possibilities of the fool in me
    And for laying firm hold of the possibilities for good in me.

    Why do I love you?

    I love you for closing your eyes to the dischords
    And for adding to the music in me by worshipful listening.

    I love you because you're helping to make of the lumber of
    My life, not a tavern but a temple, and out of the words
    Of my everyday not a reproach but a song.

    I love you because you have done more than any creed
    To make me happy.

    You have done it without a word, without a touch,
    Without a sign. You have done it just by being yourself
    And after all, perhaps that's what love means...
