How I love you

I love you daily,

Without calculating

Without inhibitions

With no reservation

With no self-consciousness.

Like the sun,

Naked in a vast sky,

With brilliant abandon,

Casting its rays

To the farthest ends

Of the farthest worlds.


I love you always

As friend and a brother

One I hug for comfort

And hold for solace

And talk to when weary.

As a partner and lover

One with whom my kisses are safe

And my passion is treasured

And my vulnerability secure

I love you with freedom

And with steadfast assurance

Like a gift that can’t be taken away.


I love you thusly,

My arms open wide.




One thought on “How I love you

  1. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
