I Guess My 'So Much' Just Has To Do


I love you so much.
'How much is that? '

I don't know.
When is the giving of it,
Too much?
How would anyone know,
When the giving of love...
Has them fulfilled?

'I can never get enough.'
And I can not say to you,
When enough has become too much.
So,
I guess my 'so much' love to you I give...
Just has to do!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
