Here’s What I Think Each Time I Look At You

Here’s what I think each time I look at you:
   Your inner beauty brings me to my knees.
How can I not adore a woman who
   Has more to give than twenty charities?
Each time we touch it feels like Christmas Day.
   Your nearness and your distance tantalize me.
No matter what I think you’ll do or say,
   You never fail to challenge and surprise me.
I feel both humbled and exalted when you
   Favor me with your deep and knowing gaze.
Just look at you—you’ve got more on your menu
   Than any twenty diners or cafés.
      And yes, my menu’s emptier, it’s true—
      But every day there’s just one special: you.
