Early morning Dew
World full of Joy
Laughter and Light.
Happiness surrounds Me
So Lucky feel I
That God hath sent Thee
My Soul marveling Why.
Eternity walking Together
Hand in Hand
Hearts light as a Feather
Leaving our footprints in the Sand.
Mere Words seem a poor way to Thank Thee
For always being There
Come stroll with me daily besides God's Sea
'Tis with you only; Forever -I wish to Share!

My Favorite Love Sonnet
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 candlelight.
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.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~
