Because your kisses are soft and tender.
Because your kisses are hungry and urgent.
Because when your smile reaches your deep blue eyes, your whole face glows.
Because when you smile at me, so do I.
Because when you really hurt, you don’t always hide your tears inside.
Because when I really hurt, you scoop me up in your arms.
Because in your arms, I feel like I’ve come home.
Because when you touch me, your knowing hands warm my cool skin.
Because you still know how to tease me and please me and otherwise appease me.
