Some of the elements that spell romance for me.
Romance is when the last words before you go to sleep are ‘I love you’
Romance does exist after 39 years old, whatever the statistics might say.
Romance is also about the things we don’t do in a relationship.
We don’t belittle someone we love in public and then say ‘But you know I love you’.
We don’t bully them and then say we are doing it ‘Because you know I love you.’
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 with a 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.
