"Resignation"

I love you
because no two snowflakes are alike
and it is possible
if you stand tippy-toe
to walk between the raindrops.
I love you
because I am afraid of the dark
and can't sleep in the light
because I rub my eyes
when I wake up in the morning
and find you there
because you with all your magic powers were
determined that
I should love you
because there was nothing for you but that
I would love you
~Nikki Giovanni
