For my Man just because I'm feeling all loved up :) (Awards will have to wait!)

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 ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use in my old griefs, and with my childhood's 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 choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
