I love your ever-present, overflowing tidbits of knowledge.
Your ability to speak eloquently
Your many faceted interests
Your capacity to listen kindly to a woman’s woes
Your beautiful brown eyes,
Especially when they smile .
The glow of your skin
The soft way your hair falls across your forehead
The quickness of your mind
The extemporaneous witticisms you create.
Your warm smile
The melodic tonal quality of your voice
Your capacity to put to memory
A thousand lines of poetry (Awesome!)
Your eccentric taste in clothing
Your level-headed rationality
Your capacity to maintain protection over your deep feelings
Your ability to keep a modicum of controlled fairness,
when opinions are flung far and wide around you.
Your cool reserve
The way you carry yourself.
