I found this poem I wrote twenty-six years ago. It still applies to my very same Valentine.
Meet me tonight amidst the darkening trees,
The lunar view they call the lover’s land.
We’ll gaze with wonder at the sparkling sea,
And walk our world together hand in hand.
The lamp lights flicker wildly through the wind,
But my heart steadily wants beyond the light.
I leave all cares a million thoughts behind,
And search the shadow of my heart and night.
For, aye, I see the starry silhouette,
Who stands with grace among the timber pine,
And lights my soul as sun of after set;
I long to understand the endless shine.
For I shall laugh and love and lose my load,
That wears me down this long untraveled road.
