    I love you because the ocean is deep
    It's just the natural order of things
    Sometimes I lay in bed and can't sleep
    Thoughts of you consume me
    I enjoy it cause it soothes me
    Sometimes I get lost in your beauty
    Your voice helps me find my way
    Only if we were closer
    And not so far away
    I wish I could go to bed
    And wake up to you in the day
    I love you because you're black
    But your skin is really brown
    Whatever it is I lack
    In you it can be found
    I love listening to you
    Your thoughts are profound
    When things get real rocky
    You help stabilize my ground
    Can you be my religion baby
    Can you absolve me of my sins
    When you talk to me
    I feel like I can do anything
    - like I can do everything
    You need your own choir of angels
    So your praises they can sing
    I love you because the sun rises in the East
    And because it sets in the West
    My heart is pounding in my chest
    The more I write about you
    The harder it beats in my chest
    You've put my insecurities to rest
    Because of you
    Negative thoughts of myself I put to death
    I love you because...
    Just because

    Yeah, that would be great. I think collabrations make both poets better.

    Nah I'm not married. I think I'm a little to young for that right now. But thanks for compliment on the poem. I do what I can. If I saw a woman cry over one of my peices, I might start crying too.

    So maybe it would be a good idea if I didn't read this at a wedding. I got a reputation to uphold. Can't let people see me cry. They maight think I'm soft. ;-)
