I Love You Not Only...

I love you not only for who you are, but for what you are when I am with you; I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but what you are making of me; I love you because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good, and more than any fate could have done to make me happy; You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign; You have done it by being yourself. Perhaps that is what being a friend means, after all;
