"I Love You"

"I love you" are special words
Everyone loves to hear
No-one ever tires of them
When heard from one you hold dear
Especially when known for certain
These precious words are true
When they are whispered so tenderly
From someone you know loves you

How Do I Love Thee?

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 and 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 Barrett Browning
