If I love you, you ask

Let me count the ways:

I love you like I love a deep breath

always available, but it feels so good when you take it.

I love you like I love clean air

sometimes you need to get away to find it.

I love you like coffee in the morning:

drink it every day but never take it for granted.

I love you in the way I love roses

with their magic and their thorns.

The way I love yoga… strong and serene.

How I love tea, smooth and sultry

Like the fours seasons

ever-changing, but certain

I love you like I love Stinson Beach,

Crater Lake, Lucas Valley

When you sleep, when you laugh

your naked body

For that much more I could here tell

I love you as I did yesterday

only more, and surely better.
