Blair Ashworth


How Much Do I Love You?


How much do I love you?
How long that love to last?
When tears have dried,
We'll lie beside
And contemplate our past.

I give my dedication,
All trust, all faith, my heart.
In solemn vow,
Accept you now
And never shall us part.

So much do I love you,
So long our love to last,
All pains endured,
All illness cured,
Forever holding fast.
