  1. How Do I Love Thee
    Poet: Elizabeth Barrett Browning


    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 every day'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.



  2. My One and Only
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    You are my one and only,
    One I care to love.
    The one and only person,
    The one I hold high above.

    The one and only person,
    I give everything to.
    The one and only person,
    I know will be true.

    You are a person,
    I know everything about.
    Yet you are a person,
    I'm always trying to figure out.

    You are my person,
    Who I can always count on.
    Someone who will never,
    Turn around and be just be gone.

    I've always hoped to find,
    A person just like you.
    And I'm thankful that I found,
    Someone who always comes through.



  3. O My Love
    Poet: S. Naidu


    Cover mine eyes, O my Love!
    Mine eyes that are weary of bliss
    As of light that is poignant and strong.
    Oh, silence my lips with a kiss,
    My lips that are weary of song!

    Shelter my soul, O my Love!
    My soul is bent low with the pain
    And the burden of love, like the grace
    Of a flower that is smitten with rain;
    Oh, shelter my soul from thy face!



  4. never doubt i love you


  5. Never Doubt
    Poet: J. S. Ogilvie


    Doubt thou the stars are fire;
    Doubt that the sun doth move;
    Doubt Truth to be a liar;
    But never doubt I love!



  6. Today
    Poet: Edmond de Goncourt


    Today I begin to understand
    What love must be, if it exists...
    When we are parted,
    We each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves.
    We are incomplete like a book
    In two volumes of which the first has been lost.
    That is what I imagine love to be:
    Incompleteness in absence.



  7. Indeed I Love You
    Poet: Unknown


    Indeed I love you for your gentle eyes;
    Soft as a Summer eveís distant view;
    I love you for the soul that lies
    Beaming in their far off ocean hue.

    I love you for you are wondrous fair;
    Yea, as the loveliest  of all your race;
    I love you for your rich waving hair,
    The streamsí round your sunny face.

    Then tell me we may meet again,
    Ere the long Summer days are oíre,
    That my love, my heartís fond refrain
    Find an echo down on the rivers short.



  8. I Love You
    Poet: Roy Croft


    I love you,
    Not only for what you are,
    But for what I am
    When I am with you.

    I love you,
    Not only for what
    You have made of yourself,
    But for what you are making of me.

    I love you
    For the part of me
    That you bring out;

    I love you
    For putting your hand into my heaped-up heart
    And passing over all the foolish, weak things
    That you can't help dimly seeing there,
    And for drawing out into the light
    All the beautiful belongings that no one else had looked
    Quite far enough to find.

    I love you
    Because you are helping me to make
    Of the lumber of my life not a tavern
    But a temple; out of the works
    Of my every day not a reproach
    But a song.

    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.
