Happy St. Valentine's Day

My funny valentine
Sweet, comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart

Your looks are laughable
Yet, you're my favorite work of art

Is your figure...less than Greek
Is your mouth...a little weak
When you open it to speak, are you smart...?

Don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay, little valentine, stay
Each day is valentine's day...

The Legend of Saint Valentine

The story of Saint Valentine
Is a legend, it is true.
But legends are delightful
and very lovely, too.

The legend says Saint Valentine,
imprisoned in a cell,
Was thinking of his little flock
he had always loved so well.

He wanted to assure them
of his friendship and his love,
So he picked a bunch of violets
and sent them by a dove.

And on the violet's velvet leaves
he pierced these lines divine...
They simply said "I LOVE YOU
and I'm your Valentine."

So through the years that followed
from that day unto this,
Folks still send messages of love
and seal them with a kiss.

Because a Saint in prison
Reached outside his bars one day
And picked a bunch of violets
and sent them out to say

That Faith and Love can triumph
no matter where you are,
For Faith and Love are greater
than the strongest prison bar.

The Rose

Some say love, it is a river
That drownes the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you it's only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong
Just remember, in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes
The rose...

Window To My Soul

I watch you from afar,my dear,
a figure in a dream,
I long to taste your lips so soft,
like moonlight's lucent beam.

We speak but briefly,not a word
about my thoughts of you.
My eyes reveal,what words unspoken
cannot hope to do.

Be not afraid to look into the
window to my soul.
For untold treasures and lifelong
pleasures are all I offer you.

When I Need Someone

When I need someone to listen,
When I need someone to care
When I need someone to lean on
I know that you are there

Thank you for the times you've listened
Thank you for showing you care
Thankyou for being strong for me
Thankyou for being there...


And let's not forget the most important heart of all...
