Love Beyond the Romantic Stage

Posted on Updated on

I say I love you- by how much, in what ways?
I love you way beyond the romantic stage.

I love you enough that even if this romance ends,
I’d still love you the same as a brother, as a friend.

I’d still keep the promises that we have made.
The secrets we keep- between us, they shall stay.

No bitter, hard feelings; nothing will change-
Because I love you beyond the romantic stage.

I love you not because of the things you give,
I love you not because it is you that I need.

I love you not because of how you make me feel,
I love you not because what we have is real.

I love you not because you love me with all your heart,
I love you because of the person that you are.

You say you love me- by how much, in what ways?
Would you love me beyond the romantic stage?
