By Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein 

I love you more than Myself, 

And I shall remain to love you like this, 

If you ask me, why I love you, 

I shall tell you, there is no reason for falling in love. 

Love happens spontaneously, 

Without reasons and thoughts. 

In my life you are the one, 

To whom, this heart loves without any reasons. 

I feel ecstasy when you feel happy, 

Keep a smile always in your manly handsome face. 

I don’t find anything precious than your smiles. 

I find reasons for being alive just for your smiles. 

I live to see your gaze at me. 

When you call me by my name in your own loving words, 

I feel, my life is fulfilled with love. 

I love you but why? 

I don’t know the reasons. 

Don’t ask me why I love you. 

Love has no reasons. 

Love has no logics. 

Love has no equations. 

Love has no mathematics. 

Love has no debit and credit. 

Love surpasses all. 

Love happens suddenly. 

So it happened to me without knowing. 

So my love, ask me not 

Why I love you.
