How do you love me? Let me count the ways You wipe the counter with disinfect spray Fold all the laundry (don't put it away) Organize tools in coherent display How do you love me? I'll tell what you do Homework with kids though your patience is through Supper concoct with ingredients few Bathtime and toothbrushing, dragon tales too
How do I love you? I love most your mind Intellect, questioning, logic refined Forming each premise, conclusion defined Reaching for nuance through temperament's bind How do I love you? I love too your heart Easy and mellow, forgiveness an art Wisdom of people's behaviors, soul smart That's how I love you, my halcyon part.
