Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you are taking time out to show your loved ones just how much they mean to you. However you celebrate, I hope your day is filled with an abundance of love.
How Do I Love Thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being an ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,- I love thee with the Breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life!- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
– Elizabeth Barret Browning
Much love oxgs.
