Day 2 of 7 days, 7 ways of saying I love you.

Saying i love you is done best with words of love, wisdom, and compassion.

Love Poems From God

Daniel Ladinsky

from the preface:
"I hope a few of these poems will reach in deep enough to cure what separates us from each other, and from the beautiful. I hope you fall into this wine barrel (this book) and crawl out legally drunk, and get arrested for doing something that makes God proud of you, like being too happy."

The Essential Neruda Selected Poems

Pablo Neruda

in the intro:
"On our earth, before writing was ever invented, before the printing press was invented, poetry flourished. That is why we know poetry is like bread; it should be shared by all, by scholars and by peasants, by all our vast, incredible, extraordinary family of humanity."

And, even sometimes with words of passion and erotica...

E.E. Cummings

This is one of my favorites {not found in this book}:
"here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart. i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart.)"

but can probably be found here.
