I love you....because

I love you
because

we share common interests like gardening, and crosswords,
where I like the words that go down, and you the ones across

I love you,
I love you because,

although marriage is a not-for-profit institution
its simply better not to make a loss

I love you, oh so,
I love you because,

you're rich and I'm gorgeous, and together
we can hear them say the oohs and the aahs

I love you, I do,
I love you because,

our love will be like a roller-coaster with remote control;
so we can skip the lows, and in the highs we can pause,

I love you,I love you,
I love you because,

Though I don't like your siblings,
your parents will make nice in-laws

I love you,I love you,
I love you because,

you're impatient and I'm understanding,
and if all the world's a stage, our play can be a farce

I love you, love you, love you,
And I love you because,

you'll lead your your life, and I'll lead mine
there'll be total independence and nothing to call ours.

The Monk, thanks! Yes, it is sarcastic, perhaps,cynical, but just wanted to bring out in a silly way, how much we abuse the word and the emotion.If everyone were to be honest with themselves,the words "I love you" will always be followed by a "because....",only no one says it, but they know it in their hearts.

A very emotional post. Almost as bitter and sarcastic as good ol' GB Shaw.
The lines were funny in a morbid way, a witty way. This could be one of those posts which should end up published sometime down the line.
