How Much Do I Love You?
'How much do I love you? '
I ask myself again.
All the way to Jupiter,
And half-way back again,
Can’t wait for you
To become better acquainted.
Each second leaves fall one by one to ground,
And languidly caress their neighbours one
By one, as if in fond farewell. The sun
Still smiles, but weakly now, as though it’s bound
It's unlikely but true -
Your physical attraction
On so many levels.
Can't let myself be crushed again,
By the merciless indiscriminate beast called love.
Won't let myself be pushed again,
