One reason is all I needed to love you.
One simple reason to give my heart to you
And you gave it when you smiled,
Your blue eyes sparkling and a smile
I fell for you like a rock off a cliff,
With no turning back.
One hundred reasons for staying in love,
One hundred reasons given over days, months, years
Without constraint, without conditions,
Never failing, never withheld.
Impossible to list, to quantify
But there nonetheless.
One thousand reasons to love you,
One thousand reasons reinforced daily, hourly,
By your kindness, your generosity,
Always encouraging me to move forward
Your unspoken but felt support,
Tangible when I need it most.
One million reasons to stand by you.
One million reasons to fall into your arms,
To cuddle against your chest,
To hear your words of love,
One million reasons.
