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 candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men 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'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.

Human
I love you even with the troubles of everyday life
Describing romantic love
Bright things which suggests a light, bright love instead of a dark, gloomy love
We don't need to be together.
Our souls are combined / in tune
I never stop thinking about you
Love for eternity
I will be there to help you when you wander off in the wrong direction
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
Our love is so pure it sings
I love thee with the passion put to use
I WOULDN'T CHANGE ANYTHING!
YOU
You are my passion in life
I will dedicate my life to you
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith
Even with my worries and mistakes I always knew you were there.
I knew who you were even when I was a child
My life has meaning
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 know its been hard but I'm ready to start fresh
I loved you before but you've changed
Better or Worse?
Every breath I take I'm happy because I'm with you
I get lost when I'm around you Literal or Romantic?
Even with the loss of family I do not grief because I'm with you
You make my emotions fly
Literal or Romance?
God must be real
He made me find you
My whole life just waiting for this moment when we discover each other
I shall but love thee better after death.
I will still love you after death
My love will never change
I'm not afraid of death as long as I know you love me as much as i love you
No one will stop me from screaming my love for you
LOVE!
