Because I love you

Because I love you
I shall love the things you love,
hear the songs that make no sense to me
for dear to you is dear to me,
and quite unlike a rooted tree is love,
no mountain, bound by boring certainties,
but beautiful and frail, in amity
renewed nightly under the midsummer moon.

Not sure what just happened

Not sure what happened with the formatting, but I'll assume it's not meant to be included in the body of the poem. I like this for it's simplicity. It's not trying to be something bigger than a simple confession of love, and why should it? Puts me in mind of Pablo Neruda without being derivative. Like L4 the best. Sounds very strong without the complications of decorative words. The word "quite" can be a little dodgy sometimes, but works here to maintain the iambic line.
