This poem expresses the fact that we may not always understand the reasons why we care about our loved ones, but we still love them, regardless.



 

 

 

You are the apple of my eye,
And, still today, I don’t know why.
You can be sweet; you can be cruel,
But, for your love, I am a fool.
I overlook each whim and fault,
To see the praise that you exalt;
For reasons I cannot explain,
My love for you could never wave.

 

You are the song within my soul;
The notes which make my story whole.
You can be loud; you can be bold,
But, my love shall never grow old.
I look beyond what you are not,
To see the boy that time forgot;
The lad, alive since time began –
The child within the soul of man.

 

You are the snow upon the hill,
The petals of each daffodil,
The summer breezes I remember,
And leaves that tumble in September.
Yet, even still, I cannot say,
Why I love you, much more each day;
But I know, ‘til the hour I die,
You’ll be the apple of my eye.

Reviewed by Lew Duffey 7/18/2007
Beautiful Jill. I might say this. "Back at ya!" In other words since we are all imperfect our loved ones may hurt us without even knowing it. We may do the same to them. Loving is making oneself vulnerable. It takes courage to keep it alive sometimes but it is well worth it.
God Bless,
Lew
