My love in words is hard to say
Warm thoughts and cheer shall rule the day
Such beauty, wit, and grace divine
I covet you my valentine.
To put in words so very hard
I bought this clever greeting card
It says the things that I am fraught
She loves me, —not she loves me naught.
My heart desires that you be mine.
Forever yours shall I be thine
Our love shall grow so intertwined
So it says in this store-bought Valentine.
Please know these printed words are mine,
Took many years this card to find
In hopes our love forever bind
I pray you are of the same mind.
Please know I speak from my true heart,
When I put this card into my cart,
The words were all mine from the start
Star-crossed lovers never part.
The card is but a paper token
My thoughts are wild, my speech is broken
I look around for the smallest sign
That you will be my valentine.
Wait no longer I confess
The pain I suffer please address
Tis hell to have to wait and guess
Praise the Lord, she said “Yes”!
