Valentine

I give you a rose

In this valentine-

Decked in an ornate beauty

Of a virgin flower.

It is vested in you now-

For final trials in your court of love;

For if I’m loved in return

You will hear the rhythms of my loving heart.

For if my love is not returned

You will hear my melancholy love songs.

 

{Inspiration: ‘Sometimes with One I Love’ by Walt Whitman}
