my heart looking back
to the life we’ve shared

messages of our love

promises given between
healing words of hope and

come to me my Valentine

let me share with you
the feelings I’ve found
in my wishes for you
the desires of my love

come to me my Valentine

so I can tell you how
much I adore you
sweat kisses of caring
my heart pounding
your womanly scent
my mind searching for yours
lie here with me, let me
hold you in my arms
until morning comes
bring with it a new day

before we have to go
our different ways

let’s just stay here

touch each other softly

take this moment,
to feel the love we
have for one another

look beyond lives restitution
