You Made Me Love You

you made me love you
with your quiet way
your silent assurance
sometimes louder
than the beating of my heart
my eyes close
as I remember
the way you angle your head
the way your hair curls on your forehead
when it's become overgrown
the way you're always so sure
memories tip toe across my mind
leaving footprints
forever embedded
like the sound of your laughter
bubbling up from your chest
the way your hands rest on the table
fingers laced with quiet purpose
and a smile so beautiful
it brings me to my knees
I had no choice
you made me love you
