They say that love is blind,
But my love for you isn't:
My heart is with my mind,
My soul is with my reason.

I know why I love you,
And it's completely real:
And unified and true:
I think it, and I feel it:

I love you for your heart,
Your sweetness and compassion,
I love you since you're smart
And filled with joy and passion,

I love you for your warmth
And excellence and wisdom;
For lights that through you course
In every time and season -

For beauty that you are
Both outside and inside,
Because you are a star
In nature and in mindset -

I love you for your will
To help, and for your honor:
For where you've gone and been
And came out all the stronger:

I love you for your grace
And for your dedication
To good deeds; your soft face
And glorious inspiration -

For your resplendent gifts
And what you're doing with them -
And all you are - it is
Completely true to reason:

I love you for your light
And unremitting kindness
All times of day and night -
No, my love is not mindless

I love you for I see
The wonder that you're truly
And from it comes to be
The passion reasoned fully:

My heart and mind are clear
And doubt they both cast out
And there is nothing here
That's blind or not thought out:

I love you with my mind
And heart and strength and spirit
No, my love is not blind -
It's unified: So feel it.
