Hey guys, I need a song that praises love, and I need to be able to compare its language, attitude, and images with those of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnet 43.

Here is Sonnet 43

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
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.

    Eight Days a Week by The Beatles

    It's a classic and talks about how much he loves this girl much like your poem does

    Thanks, I'm still keeping my options open though.

    I'm not sure what type of tunes you like, but my first though was Led Zepplin Thank You. They got the album cover wrong, this is from Zepplin II not Zepplin IV, but this one had the lyrics. If you've never listened to Led Zepplin before then you've been missing out on one of the greatest rock bands of all time.


    Favourite band in ever

    The wife used to listen to this quite a lot if this is the kind of thing you're after.

    Feels like ... I'm standing in a Timeless Dream ...
    of Light Mists ... of pale amber rose
    Feels like ... I'm lost in a Deep Cloud of Heavenly Scent
    Touching ... Discovering You ...
    Those days ... of Warm Rains come rushing back to me
    Miles of windless ... Summer Night Air ..
    Secret moments ... shared in the heat of the afternoon
    Out of the Stillness ...
    Soft spoken words ...

    I Love You Always Forever Near or Far Closer Together
    Everywhere I Will Be With You Everything I will Do for You (Repeat)

    You've Got ... the most unbelievable Blue Eyes I've ever seen
    You've Got ... me almost Melting Away
    As we Lay There ... under a blue sky with Pure White Stars ...
    Exotic Sweetness ... a magical time ...


    Say you'll Love, Love Me Forever
    Never Stop, Not for Whatever
    Near and Far and Always and Everywhere and Everything
    Say you'll Love, Love Me Forever
    Never Stop, Not for Whatever
    Near and Far and Always and Everywhere and Everything (Repeat)
    I love you always forever near and far closer to-gether everywhere I
    will be with you
    everything I will do for you ...
