valentine

no box of chocolates for you this year
no flowers at your door or behind my back
no torn-open cards to making sure you know
that my love has been growing all this time too many miles lie between us today
way too long since I’ve held your hand
too many tears since you last wore that smile
and that last embrace lingers here in my mind be my
valentine
hold me in your heart, like I hold you in mine
never
letting go
it’s no trouble to love you, do it all the time
one day
you will see
that you’re always going to be my valentine a short message says it, but doesn’t say all
maybe you’ll let me tell you all the rest
if I can find the words to tell you the story
that’s being written on my heart all the time it’s reflected in your face; flashes in your eyes
these seeds of love grow where they’re sown
no need to hide it, so I won’t try any more
and I’ll tell you every secret held here inside be my
valentine
hold me in your heart, like I hold you in mine
never
letting go
it’s no trouble to love you, do it all the time
one day
you will know
that you’re always going to be my valentine
