How Do I Love You

Written by: Diba Basar

How do I love you, my gentle rays of sunshine?
I love you like a summer day passes by so fine
Like the brightness of light that is so divine
With the sweetness of the smell of the fresh leaves of pine
and a love so pure that only heaven can design

The way I love you, my lovely valentine
is bitter yet sweet like the taste of old wine
Strong yet tender like a silver line
Without lies and again without the thought of feigns
Adoring you like the goddess in the shrine

And yet, my dearest wonderful rhyme
My heart knows that our lives will never be intertwined
and your beauty has given me a sadness so define
For I know that you will never be mine
Just let me place this sorrow in me, like a parasitic love vine
