Because – My Love Story

Because you spoke to me in tones I could not forget
When neither was really aware of the others existence yet

Because I saw  in you exactly what I had been searching for
And found it so easy to pledge my life and work forever more

Because you proved over and over again that your life was entwined with mine
And it was plain that we belonged with each other
For as long as God gives us, and, perhaps, beyond time

Because there is so much I feel and cannot quite express,
I write this poem so that it might help, at least, augment these words above
