About the Poem

There were two inspirations for this verse: Annette and that most famous of all poems, "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..."

Well, not to be a copycat, I decided to measure rather than count. This poem, written early in our fiery romance, became almost a cliche for us. "I love you," I would tell Annette. "How much?" she would always ask with a cunning smile.

She bought me a beautiful chrome lighter one Christmas, with the words "Lots of Whole Bunches" engraved in lovely script. I still have that lighter. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, I lost Annette.

Lots of Whole Bunches

How do I measure my love,
When I love you so very much?
How do I fill a cup
With your smile, your smell, your touch?

Can I find the words to say
The weight of my love is this?
Can I tell you the priceless worth
Of your look, of your kiss?

How do I measure my love?
It's not so hard to do:
Filled to lots of whole bunches,
That's how much I love you.
