The Love Affair

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and strength and quantity

My cup can reach, when feeling slow and ranty

Give me full fat cap or whatever’s going.

I love thee to the level of my toddler’s

Loudest need; pass me the coffee, stat!

I love thee freely, as I sit through Postman Pat.

I love thee purely, as toddler turns banshee.

I love thee with the passion once saved

For under the covers, and with first-time-mum hope…

I love thee for without you I am weak

For the day ahead. I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears of all my parenting days; and if the Toddler requires,

I shall but love thee better with Baileys…

…or with cake.
