Because of You

Love is an amazing thing, and when you meet the right person it suddenly takes on a new dimension. UK poet Elle Smith sums up those feelings of being in love beautifully in this original poem called "Because of You": 



Because of You


I love you

but that’s just three words.

Is it enough for me

inside you to be heard?


I love you

each and every single day

from the time I wake up

to literally the end of the day.


I love you

because you break every rule.

You make the noise

which makes my heart skip in tune.


I love you

as I realize you opened by eyes

before you came along

relationships held no real surprise.


I love you

because you make me complete        

the best part of all

you truly sweep me off my feet.
