Why do I love you so?

They often ask
Why do I love you so?
Why do I insist on staying firmly grounded
into the Earth beside your two feet
When I could be anywhere else?

Here is why

You, are my clear blue stream of cold fresh water
Inside your enchanting depths
I see my spirit, reflected
Without its flaws or its scars or its muckiness
I see myself glorified
The finest version of me, staring back at me
And I become conscious
Of all the things that I am capable of
Of the things I can accomplish
Of the person I can become
And I feel my body transform
Slowly, but steadily
Into the woman that you admire!
