How can you love me with so much grace?

I know how much you love; how much you give.

I just don’t understand how you like my face.

I will still give you my heart just to live

For rays of sun do not shine in my hair

I have eyes of a deer; large and wide.

My skin is not so easily fair

And I would much rather be away to hide

But in your eyes, I am even more than this

‘Cause to me my darling dear, your love

Shines through to make a perfect bliss.

You make me feel like a found gray dove.

I am what I am and I love you too

Together, we were made to live this life through.
