Why do I love you?
I love you not only for what you are
But for what I am when I'm with you

I love you not only for what
You've made of yourself
But for what you're making of me

I love you for ignoring the possibilities of the fool in me
And for laying firm hold of the possibilities for good in me

Why do I love you?
I love you for closing your eyes to the discords
And for adding to the music in me by worshipful listening

I love you because you're helping to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern but a temple

And out of the words of my everyday
Not a reproach but a song
I love you because you have done more than
Any creed to make me happy

You have done it without a word
Without a touch without a sign
You have done it just by being yourself
And after all perhaps that's what love means

Songwriters
KERN, JEROME / HAMMERSTEIN, OSCAR II
