i do love you

   I do love you,

   as the dew loves the flowers;

   as the birds love the sunshine;

   as the wavelets love the breeze;

   as mothers love their first-born;

   as memory loves old faces;

   as the yearning tides love the moon;

   as the angels love the pure in heart...
   Take my kiss and my benediction, and try to be reconciled to the fact that I am.
