My Valentine.

I penned this in memory of my late wife, as I have done every year since we met in 1947.

My Valentine.

Ever since the day we met,

I became yours and you mine

I have composed a verse or two 

on the day of St.Valentine.


Last year I could not do so,

the pain was still too strong,

having lost you the year before 

All I could do is long

For your gentle look,

Your warm embrace,

Your loving words,

Your  smiling face.

But today for the rest of time

I am yours once again

and will always remain

Your one and only Valentine. 


So here we are you and me

Lovers throughout  eternity,
