How Do I Love Thee


Let me count the ways.

I love you as a daughter loves her father. The one I look up to for guidance and inspiration in life; the one to love and spoil me unconditionally.

I love you as a mother loves her little boy. The one I want to take into my arms and baby forever; the one I hope to protect and shield from all things evil in the world.

I love you as a woman loves her lover. The one whose kisses make me weak in the knees; the one whose smiles make me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

I love you as a girl loves her best friend. The first person I think of telling whenever something happens to me; the one I always turn to for advice and comfort.

I love you as a wife loves her husband. The partner to hold my hand and walk the path of life together; the one to hold me in his arms and fall asleep with every night; the one to wake up next to every morning and make my everyday count; the one to start a family of our own with; and the one to grow old and wrinkly together.

Happy 5th anniversary, baby.
