This Is How It Is

Note: Written for Jemmy to be given to Y.

I love you the way
Waves love the shore. 

There were times
when I was filled 
to the brim with tender love. I 
Loved you gently and I wanted
You
In my arms.

There were times 
when my love seemed like a 
hurricane: urgent and unrestrainable
Thought of you
All night. 

But if you asked me
Why I loved you,
I would've had no idea
Other than I love you
And I do, I do.
