I Love Thee

My Dear…
Can you love me as much as I love you? Can you express your emotions freely? Don’t be afraid! Every loving thought uttered or shown will come back to you multiplied. The more you open yourself to me, the more open to you I become.

19th Century English Romantic poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning
love handHow do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee
to the depth
and breadth
and height
My soul can reach…
I love thee freely…
I love thee purely…
I love thee
with the breath,
Smiles, tears,
of all my life!
