'Why I Love You' - Poem by Bernard Snyder

I love you because you're the other half
that makes me whole,
when we're apart
I feel helpless and out of control,
when we're together united as one,
you make me feel I can reach out
and wrap my arms around the sun,
when I'm with you
I don't feel any sense of pressure,
I'm completely secure
and I feel very, very special,
and if that isn't enough
to answer why I love you so,
I can easily write another page
but I would hate to ruin the flow.

    The other half too should be feeling same way as you do, I presume. Mutual understanding is what is essential in a shared life. Tanks very much for sharing a very sentimental poem. X (Report) Reply

    Though it is good to read but not unique......it seems to me a copy of John Done......
    I know it may not be true because you might have not read or heard of Donne.....but as I read him it does not seem to me the presentation unique.........sorry to say this. But from my knowledge of Donne though little..compel me to call conscience........

    Thank you for taking it as usual and friendly discussion........nurul (Report) Reply

    Too artificially romantic for my taste. If that is what some readers like, I say, Taste-buds differ,
    in literature as on the palate. I defer to the readers, even as I differ from some. (Report) Reply
