I love you simply not because
I love you not because you are funny, beautiful, and smart.
Not because you bring unexpected delight.
I love you not because you fish me from the depths of self-destruction.
Not because I am much better when I'm with you.
I love you simply because I do.
I love you simply because one plus one equals two.
Because nucleons bind to nuclei.
I love you simply because dents in space
keeps the stars' fiery dance.
Becaus plus and minus keep us from sinking into the molten core.
I love you because measures of space are three not four.
Because there is enough dark to keep light shining bright.
I love you simply because in a multiverse
of infinite possible worlds, I am in one where I do, love you.
