How Will I Love Thee


I will love thee
As there is no other
I will respect you
As I respect my mother
I will care for you
As you care for me
I will do for you
As you do for me
Every morning
A kiss will greet thee
Every night
I will love you completely
And I will love thee
In all of these ways
Morning, noon & night
Until the end of our days

    Being a romantic myself, as no doubt you are as well, Tia, I loved this fine ultra romantic poem. No man could possibly want a better lover than the one described so beautifully in this charming poem. Your words in this poem are almost as inspiring as those of Elizabeth Barrett Browning who wrote a similarly titled poem over one hundred years ago. Carl. (Report) Reply
