How Many Ways Do I Love You

How Many Ways Do I Love You

If ever I told you so
that I’d love your soul

It should be real, and

I think I’ve known
how you smile.

I think I know that
you are so lovely.

Can it be real. I

Will you find in me
inspiration, because

I want you to
breathe in me, and

I want to blow you away

Not too far
not too lonely, because

I am here, and
I give you my body
and soul to touch, because

you look at me, and
see me.
