Archives For Valentine

Valentine, since we’re ashine
with love (that sometimes may be blind)
and we as one have been combined
by a power that is truly divine,
we are forevermore entwined.

I could look to the ends of the earth and not find
a greater and more alluring goldmine
of love and affection worthy of headlines
than the one with whom I’m forever intertwined –
not even JFK’s famed Jacqueline.

Should my heart ever not be kind
and think of failing to “walk the line,”
or worse, of parting from this sweetheart of mine,
I should surely be flogged by the famed “cat-o-nine,”
be tried by a jury and justly opined
as worthy of hanging from the nearest pine.

The thought is bitter as bitterest quinine
to think of ever being realigned
with anyone else except you, my Sunshine!
I pledge that forever my heart is thine
and, as token to that, I have undersigned.

With you, my darling Valentine,
I drink of love’s most desirable wine
and all the joys of living examine.
A yearning for you will be my life’s Y-line
until we are called to God’s kingdom of Zion.

V is for “va-va-voom,” the feeling I get
when you walk into the room; my sweetheart, my pet.

A — for the French word “Amour,” the kind that lasts for life
(or as the French would say “toujours”) twixt a man and
his wife.

L is for love that lasts “until death do us part”
for each has given to the other his or her heart.

E is for eternity, the time we want to spend
in each other’s presence, for we are best of friends.

N stands for now and always, we promise to be true
to one another — you to me, and I to you.

T is for time that seems to stand still with you by my side
and yet it’s so natural it seems forever you’ve been my bride.

I, of all men, have been most wonderfully blessed
to have a woman like you share our little love nest.

N stands for never has there been a doubt in my mind
that you were the one God intended in my life for this time.

E says eternal shall my song of gratitude be
to God for sending you to share this life with me.
