My lady, I will tell you; I will tell you why, oh sure I will.

It’s not just that wide smile that melts the hearts of men

With well chiseled white teeth hidden behind the lips of an angel

It’s not just those big bright eyes that see beyond the masks of men

Neither is it those locks that hang firmly on that head

It’s not just your chocolate complexion or smooth spotless and flawless skin

Neither is it your breasts that stand firm and tender

It’s not the waist that rivals that of the wasp

Or the hips that sway gently from side to side

Neither is it the legs that look like they were curved from Greece

Yeah! Fair one – yeah

It has never been that shapely body

That makes all cloths on you

Look like they were handmade by Louis Vuitton

But it’s the beauty of your mind, the strength of your will,

It’s the tenderness of your affection; the warmth of your love

It’s the firmness of your character and your timeless virtues,

It’s your sense of identity and purpose

It’s your balance between tradition and the changing times

Your appreciation of the arts – the works of your hands

It’s your wisdom and your passion for learning

It’s your knowledge of history; an awareness of the present and a certainty about the future

Your respect for nature and your love for justice,

It’s your regard for the needy and less fortunate; the generosity and kindness of your heart,

Your confidence and humility; your courage and bravery

It’s the faith and hope you radiate

Above all, it’s your respect for the spirit world and the fear of God

So when you ask me why, I will tell you –

It’s the person I become when I am with you

It’s the man I hope to be

But most importantly what we could together become

And you are the reason why
