I wonder why?

I wonder why you fell love with me?
There are times when I look in the mirror
When I'm getting dressed and I look at myself
And I wonder what it is that you see in me
That I can't see in myself.

I have many scars,
I have many flaws
But you tell me of how you look
Way beyond these things I have.
You tell me that you see perfection...perfection in your eyes.
The scars are not my fault.
The flaws bring out my beauty that I have been hiding within.

I wonder why you still put up with me?
When it takes me a while to understand your sense of humor,
Your cute little jokes
But you're still here
And you still love me like
No other woman you have ever loved before.

I wonder why I'm still here?
When I can't seem to understand me,
Why I cry at times for no apparent reason.
I wonder why you put up with my silly little tantrums?
You just smile and tell me that it brings out the
Cute side of me.

I wonder why it's difficult to accept myself
And not think I'm a failure.
But you are there for me
And always have been
And always will be.
You say that you can't be mad at me; it's not in you.
You understand me because you love me
With all your heart.

I wonder why you have accepted me for "who I am"?
And you ALWAYS tell me this:
"Baby, your scars and your flaws are there for a reason,
and one reason alone. The scars saved your life and the flaws are simply your inner beauty that you have hidden all your life. Both combined have brought me to you...the INCREDIBLE woman that you are. The woman that has made me so happy and my life so complete."
I cry with tears of joy,
And a smile on my face.
And I'm so blessed that God
Gave me you, and you to me.
Though we may have some difficulties at times
In our relationship,
But it's a time when our love for each other
Will grow stronger each and every day.

I wonder why I fell so madly in love with you?
Because God gave me a chance to fall in love again,
And he gave me lover, and my very BEST friend forever!
