How much do i love you?
How deep my love for you? - Vast oceans deep
Man could not forge a craft to plumb its depths.
How strong my love for you? - T'woulld make men weep
To test its strength and see their strength bereft.
How pure my love for you? - Pure as the snow
Purer in its innocence than you could ever know.
How long my love for you? - Eternity
Beyond the end of time my love remains
How fresh my love for you? - Modernity
A freshness that no flower on Earth attains.
How rich my love for you? - Richer than gold
Pure gold untarnished, never growing old.
Deep, strong and pure my love dear, is sublime
Long, fresh and rich my love, you love entwines.
