How shall I love thee?
With words fair to the open ear,
And printed on paper yellowing
Words from my pen you wanted to hear,
With a fire that soon will be mellowing
Ink dries, falters, and fades
In ever lightening shades

Or should I love thee,
With deeds grand, tangible to touch
And actions, such can be measured,
Done in name of love mean so much
And more to the eyes, a pleasure
Actions define the latent lover
Yet surpassed by always another

I think I should love thee,
With thoughts from my eternal mind
And brave whatever comes this way,
For as long as I can think, love will never die
It is the only lasting card I have to play,
For thoughts are to words, the seed,
And drive the temporal deed

stalk you later,jm

 You're going to hear my voice in the morning calling your name
And know my love and my desperation were one and the same...
Baby it's alright...
Take this pain and all this sadness
It's alright
Take this rain
You're going to be free...
Jackson Browne

d, Thanks!

Marina, Thanks, that is so nice of you. If you like this, then yes, these come to me in minutes, and if i dont write it down, they fade away. But they come more infrequently, which is ok with me.
Thanks again.

Wow Corinne. I was hoping just for ok. It was just a little idea i had.
Thanks.
