I love thee with the passion put to use

by - 9:46:00 PM

I love thee with the 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.
          - How Do I Love Thee?
          Elizabeth Barrett Browning
