I love me to the depth and breadth and height
my soul can reach, when feeling, extending
beyond my Being and into ideal Grace.
I love me for my everyday’s
most quiet need, by sun or shade
I love me freely, without any shame
I love me purely, as I love my god
I love me with the passion I use
in my art, and loving you.
I love me with a love I seemed to lose
with all the rest … I love me for the breath
smiles, tears of all my life! and … i choose
to continue to love me until death
