    I believe it was Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    Who said, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways”
    Yet I cannot begin to fathom in my mind
    The innumerable ways that I love you
    For my love for you
    Transcends
    Mortal boundaries
    I love you deeply
    So deeply
    That its depth cannot be measured
    My love for thee is stronger than my desire for life itself
    For if need be I would give mine for you
    How do I love thee?
    I can’t even put it into words
    Therefore
    My actions shall convey
    The message of this powerful emotion
    You see I realize
    That my purpose for being born
    Was to love you
    Even before I met you
    My life was entwined with yours
    This is why you can ask what you will of me
    And I shall bestow it upon you
    You are my soul mate
    The part that completes me
    The other half of my heart
    That until you came into my life
    It wasn’t whole
    Our souls have kissed and made love
    In our dreams
    conception took place
    and upon our first meeting
    love had been delivered and we brought forth
    an unending devotion to one another
    this is why
    I cry
    Laugh
    Sing
    Scribe
    All for you
    Because of you
    You are the reason
    I can tap into the essence of life
    And draw out those things
    That gives life meaning
    You are why
    I can pen a prose
    From the subterranean chambers of my heart
    And produce
    Life giving
    Love permeating
    Fruits
    Of poetic passion
    For you are my inspiration
    the door to my imagination
    for when I scribe
    we both scribe
    as one flesh
    forever tied together
    giving birth and life to poetic fire,
    an eternal flame that shall symbolize my love
    for you throughout all eternity.
