Why Do I Love My Wife?

Why do I love my wife? To be honest, this question has never crossed my mind, let alone the answer. Very often, we like or love someone without knowing why we do so. I have often asked people why they love someone, and their answer would be ‘because I love him or her’. The answer is really unsatisfactory, indeed.

The same also happens to me. Being simple, the reason why I love my wife, I think, is because I love her. I believe love is illogical and unexplainable. It is very difficult to elaborate why we love someone. I first met my wife more than 12 years ago, and ever since, I have always found something special in her that I could never find in any other girl, and I have always felt very secure and lively to be near her. Strangely enough, those kinds of feeling are indescribable and really beyond words.

However, if the question means ‘What do I like from my wife?’, I will be able to tell most, if not all, of the kinds of “magic” that my wife has. I would begin with our first meeting, which I still often recall with a smile. It was the first time I knew that she was a shy and lovely girl.

As our relationship developed, I realized that she also had a sweet and adorable personality, engulfed in a natural beauty of a small-town girl. Nevertheless, it was her natural physical beauty that first attracted me. Her face has hardly ever been touched by layers of cosmetics or make-ups, except on very, very special occasions. Everyday, she goes to work only with a thin layer of facial make-ups. She has never had her hair done just in order to keep up with the latest trend. She never cares about the latest fashion. She’s not the kind of woman who likes to spend a lot of money on clothes or cosmetics. On our dressing table, you can still find several sets of cosmetics aged more than a year. She rarely uses it! She also never worries about adding her collection in her wardrobe. Several weeks ago, she had 2 pairs of shoes repaired on a street shoe-repairman. To be short, among the glittering world of late fashion and sophisticated technology, she shines like a true diamond, - modest, natural, untouched and pure, yet charming, and hypnotizing.

When I spend some time alone to think, I often wonder how she has always been able to keep my feelings going strong and unchanged through years. I think it is simply because she loves me as I am. She has always believed in me and let this love grow naturally, without restrain or conditions. She has never failed to love me and treat me as a man, and that really makes my life worthwhile and meaningful. Although we have two children now, those magical feelings have never once changed a bit. The way she takes care of our children is one a man can dream of from a woman. She has always been willing to give without asking back, like the sun of my world. She provides a direction to my every step, like a guiding star in the night when everything else is dark. I think those are why I love my wife. With all my feelings that I feel inside, I have no doubt in loving her forever!

Where do I begin to tell a story of how great a love can be?
A sweet love story that is older than the sea,
The simple truth about the love she gives to me
Where do I start?
With her first hello, she gave a meaning to this empty world of mine
There'll never be another love another time
She came into my life and made this living fine
She fills my heart.....
She fills my heart with very special things
with angel songs, and wild imagining
She fills my soul with so much love that anywhere I go,
I'm never lonely
With her along, who could be lonely?
I reach for her hands, ... and she'll be there
How long does it last?
Can love be measured by the hours in the day?
I know I need her till the stars all burn away
and she'll be there ....
