How Do I Love Thee

From Heart Talk by Jack Branch



How Do I Love Thee...

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 I deal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men and women 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 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 chooses, I shall but love thee better after death...
