I'm Happy That You Love Me

How can you love me
As much as you do?
You know all about me,
Yet you still stay here too.

How can you look,
And see right through the tears?
Look into my eyes,
And see past my fears?

You put your arms around me,
And say all will be okay,
You look right through my cover,
And see "me" as clear as day.

There's so much going on
In your life these days,
Yet you still find time to get in mine,
And still give God your praise.

I don't know why you love me,
But I'm happy that you do,
Or else I'd be so empty inside,
And I'd miss loving you.
