You ask " why do you love me?"
I ask " why do you care?"
You ask " why do you spend your time, wishing I were there?"
You wonder how it's possible
Perhaps I 'm just a nut
And my computations are the product
Of a random scatter plot.
Well, let me say just one small thing
As part of my defense:
I love you for all that which counts
And cuz your different!
No, it doesn't add up
When you tally one plus one,
But mathemetics of the heart
Turn cosine on it's bum.
You see, when calculating numbers with
The rules of heart plus heart
There is a subatomic force
It increases the ionic bond,
Squares the inverse of it's sum
And makes two indivisibles
Become a perfect one!
First you round up all that's good
And kind and precious too
Then times that by the will to try
To learn something new.
Divide that by the differences
Between you and your friend
Subtract away the small mistakes
Then add the dividend.
You'll see that you have multiplied
The force that binds all things
and keep people together
Like the "K" force of a spring
Of irrational mistakes
Flips negatives to positives
With exponential grace.
( With just one small "I'm sorry"
all unknowns become replaced.)
You see, the coefficient of relationships
Determines how much strength
You give life's unknown variables
In life there's always ups and down
And change makes people scared,
But the theory of relationships
Says love can't be compared
A natural progression
(With statistical regression)
To the "y" of your reflection
Then the apply the whole expression
To the full f(x) of love.
It's not so enigmatic then
To diagram the ven of when
Two people come together and
The overlap begins.
It doesn't have to add up
Or be mathematically sound
Cuz when your calculating love
Your heart knows just what counts!
