I can't put into words why I love you.
I just know that I do.
I know you don't deserve it,
but I love you anyway.
I know the real you -
the you that babies and animals see.
The you that makes the babies stare and the animals nuzzle.
They and I see and know the real you,
the lovable you,
the you that you feel is lost.
But I see you hiding in there,
and I love you.
