Why Do I Love Him?

Author’s Note: I wrote the first three stanzas of this poem almost two decades ago, 1997. I was 13-14 yrs old experiencing my first brush of romance. Two years later, my friend asked me to continue the poem and so I wrote the next stanzas when I was 16. I no longer write about love so I’m feeling nostalgic reading this. I think it’s still an enjoyable read, I want to edit it before posting but it will no longer be as authentic. I’m putting “()” for the original words that I did minor edits. Just remember, this was written by a teenager. 😉

From the first time I saw him
His tantalizing eyes were looking at me
And from that day on
My heart trembles (starts to tremble) every time I see him

I never knew that crazy feeling
Was started from there
I really can’t explain
These feelings I have

From the moment we talked
From the time I glanced at his face
I never really know
Why do I love him?

I made this poem just for him
But I don’t even know the reason for this
Maybe someday I will see
That this love is for real

Then I’ve told myself forget
But (this heart of mine) my heart can’t make the bet
Now I am (my heart) full of regrets
Still searching for the reasons why we two met?

Can’t explain these feelings
Can’t find those keys
Maybe he’s just too good to be true
But he’s the one who makes me feel blue

Maybe I love him
Maybe I like him
But you know – still searching for the answers
Why do I love him?
